  2. 2. Primary market: where new bonds are issued to investors. Secondary market: where previously issued bonds trade.  Most secondary market trading occurs in a decentralized (fragmented) OTC market—in part because no two bonds are alike. Size of bond market: Face value of all bonds outstanding worldwide in 2007 was about $65 Trillion.  Contrast this with the equities where global capitalization was about $55 Trillion. 

  6. 6.  Bond features are outlined in a contract between the issuer and investors (called the indenture): • Term to maturity • Principal amount • Coupon rate • Amortization features • Embedded options.
  7. 7.  Term to maturity: # of years until the bond expires.  Usually just called ―term‖ or ―maturity. Bond terms:  Short term: 1 to 5 years.  Intermediate term: 5 to 12 years.  Long term: > 12 years.
  8. 8.  Principal: The amount the issuer agrees to repay to bondholders at the maturity date. • Also commonly called: face value, par value, maturity value.  Coupon Rate: the annual interest rate the issuer agrees to pay on the face value (principal). • The coupon is the annual amount the issuer promises to pay (in $): • coupon = coupon rate *principal • The coupon is paid semiannually on most bonds.
  9. 9.  Some bonds pay no coupons (zerocoupon bonds). Zeros are sold at a substantial discount to face value and redeemed at face value at expiration. All interest is therefore received at expiration.  Some bonds have floating coupons The coupon resets periodically, according to some formula
  10. 10.  The coupon for a floater is determined by the following general formula: • Floater coupon = floating reference rate + fixed margin
  11. 11.  The principal on a bond can be paid two ways: • Paid all at once at expiration (―bullet‖ maturity). • Paid little-by-little over the life of the bond according to a schedule (amortizing).  One advantage of a bond that amortizes principal is that the issuer won’t have to fund a big “balloon payment” at expiration.
  12. 12.  Options are actions that can be taken by either the issuer or the investor.  The most common is a call provision: Grants issuer the right to retire bonds (fully or partially) prior to maturity.  Put provision: Enables the bondholder to sell the issue back to issuer at par value prior to expiration.

  14. 14.  Interest-rate Risks - Associated with Bond Investing , thereby reducing a bond’s price (also called market risk). • The major risk faced by bond investors. risk – the risk that the interest rate at which intermediate cash flows can be reinvested will fall.  Reinvestment risk – the risk the issuer may ―call‖ or retire all or part of the issue before the maturity date.  Call
  15. 15. risk – risk that issuer will fail to satisfy the terms of the bond.  Credit Default risk: Risk the issuer does not repay part or all of its financial obligation. 2. Credit spread risk: Risk that an issuer’s obligation will decline due to an increase in the credit spread (the part of the risk premium or yield spread attributable to default risk). 3. Credit deterioration risk: Risk that the credit quality of the issuer decreases (closely related to credit spread risk). 1.
  16. 16. risk – the risk that the purchasing power of a bond’s cash flows may decline.  Inflation • Floating rate bonds have a lower level of inflation risk than coupon bonds. rate risk – if a bond is denominated in a foreign currency (e.g., the euro), the value of the cash flows in US$ will be uncertain.  Exchange
  17. 17. risk – the risk that the bond cannot be sold with ease at (or near) its current value.  Liquidity • Unimportant for investors holding a bond to maturity. • Liquidity can be measured by the bid-ask spread. • The wider the spread the less liquid a bond is. Sometimes called marketability risk.
  18. 18. risk – the value of embedded options is determined partly by the volatility of interest rates  Volatility • The price of a bond with embedded options will change as interest rate volatility changes. risk – The bond market has been a hotbed of financial innovation.  Risk • The risk/return characteristics of innovative securities are not always understood.
