3. What is a BOND?• A Bond is an agreement ( or financial asset ) in which an issuer is required to repay to the investor the amount borrowed plus interest over a specified period of time. Principal borrowed by government(corporation) from investor Principal Regular interest payments Principal returned to investor 3
4. Example In the beginning of 1994 U.S. government borrowed $100 million at 9% yearly rate by issuing 100,000 bonds for $1,000 each. Each bond promised to pay its holder $90 (9% of $1,000) at the end of year for 10 years and repay $1,000 at the end of 2003. $1,000+ $90=coupons $1,090 $90 $90 $90 Years 1994 1995 … 2002 2003 principal+ You pay price of the bond last coupon 4
5. FOUR COMPONENTS OF A BOND• Issuer The organization responsible for ensuring that interest and principal payments are made to bondholder.• Principal The amount of money denominated in a specific currency that the issuer wishes to borrow and agrees to repay the investor. (Face Value, Par value, Maturity value)• Coupon (rate) The rate of interest the issuer agrees to pay the investor. Usually stated as a percentage of the Face V.• Maturity date The date on which the issuer of a bond must repay the principal due and the final interest rate payment. 5
6. Bond Valuation ??? Pricing a bond is a simple two step process: 1. Define the cash flows. 2. Calculate the aggregate present value of the cash flows using appropriate discount rate (r). Note: Generally discount rate IS NOT EQUAL to coupon rate!!! FaceValue+ ccoupons c c c Years 1 2 … t-1 t principal+ You pay price of the bond last coupon 6
7. What is appropriate discount rate (r)?• It is an interest rate on similar bonds on financial markets.• What does similar mean?• Similar features!!! (ALL)• Similar risk!!! 7
8. Yield to Maturity (YTM)• Yield to Maturity (YTM) - The single discount rate (internal rate of return) used to calculate the market price of the bond. – Reflects the required market interest rate for the bond. – Assumes the bond is held to maturity. – Different than the coupon rate. 8
9. Yield to Maturity (YTM) • In other words: • If you plan to hold the bond until maturity n years from today: • The yield to maturity is the discount rate at which the bond’s price is the present value of the bond’s payments (coupons and face value). C C C C ParPr ice PV (bond ) = 2 3 ... n 1 r 1 r 1 r 1 r • YTM is the required return on the bond assuming it will be held until maturity. 9
10. Bond Valuation (using YTM) C C C FaceV .PV ( Bond ) 1 2 ... t (1 r ) (1 r ) (1 r ) FaceValue+ c coupons c c c Years 1 2 … t-1 t principal+ You pay price of the bond last coupon 10
11. Example Five year 9% coupon bond offers these cashflows. Discount rate (YTM) is 9% . $1,000+ What is the present value of this bond? $90= $1,090 $90 $90 $90 $90 Years 1998 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 C C C C C FaceV . PV ( Bond ) (1 r )1 (1 r ) 2 (1 r ) 3 (1 r ) 4 (1 r ) 5 90 90 90 90 1,090PV ( Bond ) 1,000 (1 .09 )1 (1 .09 ) 2 (1 .09 ) 3 (1 .09 ) 4 (1 .09 ) 5 11
12. What happens if the discount rate (YTM) drops to 5.3%? 90 90 90 90 1,090PV ( Bond ) 1,158 .87 (1 .053 )1 (1 .053 ) 2 (1 .053 ) 3 (1 .053 ) 4 (1 .053 ) 5 If the interest rate on similar bonds was 5.3% the value of 9% Treasures increases to $1,158.87. What happens if the interest rate on similar bonds was 10%? 90 90 90 90 1,090 PV ( Bond ) 962 .09 (1 .1)1 (1 .1) 2 (1 .1) 3 (1 .1) 4 (1 .1) 5 The value of 9% Treasures decreases to $962.09. 12
13. Bond Valuation Using the Annuity Formula• Value a Bond with a combination of the Annuity and the Present Value formulas. 1 1 Par Amount Value of Bond = Coupon n n r r 1+ r 1+ r 13
14. Example• Suppose investors demand an interest rate of 5 percent on a 10-year 6 percent bond. How much should investors pay to acquire the bond? (Alternatively, what’s the price of the bond?)• Solution: coupon rate is 6%, this means we are going to receive $60 each year for 10 years and another $1,000 in the end of year 10. The discount rate is 5%. 1 1 par PV cpn t t r r 1+ r 1+ r 1 1 1000 60 $1,077.22 .05 .05 * 1.0510 1.0510 14
15. Semiannual Coupon Bond• In the United States, most bonds make coupon payments semiannually.• A bond has a coupon rate of 6 percent, with coupon payment made semiannually. This means the bond makes payment of $1,000*(6%/2)=$30 every 6 months.• Accordingly, the quoted interest rate is APR and has to be compounded semiannually. 15
16. Semiannual Coupon Bond What is the value of a bond with a face value of $1000, coupon rate of 10% and maturity of 10 years? Assume semiannual coupon payments and an annual interest rate of 8% compounded semiannually.0 1 2 3 4 5 20 $50 $50 $50 $50 $50 $50 $1000 Semiannual Coupon payments=(1000*0.10)/2 50 50 (50 1,000 ) Price 0 .... $1136 (1 0.04 )1 (1 0.04 ) 2 (1 0.04 ) 20 16

18. Using Financial Functions FV=Par Yearly discount Rate = I/YR PMT PMT PMTYears 0 1 2 N PV = PriceGiven any four of the variables(N, I, PV, PMT,FV) yourfinancial calculator can solvefor the fifth. 18
19. Examples• $1,000 bond for 10 years with 9% interest and 9% yearly coupons• PMT=90 FV=1000 N=10 I/Y=9% PV=?• $1,000 bond for 5 years with 5% interest and 9% semiannual coupons• PMT=45 FV=1000 N=5*2 I/Y=5/2 PV=?• $1,000 bond for 10 years with 9% interest and 9% yearly coupons .What happens after five years if the interest rate changes to 5% then? 11%? 19
20. How can we calculate YTM?• Find r so present value of payments is equal to price.• Use financial calculator.• Example: $1,000 face value, $90 annual coupons for 5 years, $1,100 price• FV=1000 PMT=90 N=5 PV=-1100 I/Y=? Note: PV is equal to price!!! 20
21. More ExamplesExample 1: C = $90, t = 10 years, Po = 1050. FV=1000 PMT=90 N=10 PV=-1050 YTM=8.25%Example 2: C = $90, t = 10 years, Po = 900. FV=1000 PMT=90 N=10 PV=-900 YTM=10.67% 21
22. How do Bond Prices Vary with Interest?• What happens if the coupon rate is equal to the interest rate? (see slide 11)• What happens to bond prices if the interest rate goes up? (see slide 12)• What happens to bond prices if the interest rate goes down? (see slide 12) 22
23. Bond Prices and Interest Rates (YTM) Bond Price Int.rate= Coupon rateBond Price=Face Value Interest Rate 23
24. Conclusion/Observation:–When the market interest rate equals the couponrate, bonds sell for the face value.–When the market interest rate exceeds thecoupon rate, bonds sell for less than face value.–When the market interest rate is below thecoupon rate, bonds sell for more than face value. 24
25. Price vs. Face ValueIf P < Face V. the bond is said to be sold at a discountIf P > Face V. the bond is said to be sold at a premiumIf P = Face V. the bond is said to be sold at parEx 1: If a bond with a face value FV = 100 would be sold in themarket for P = 99.5 we would say it is sold at a discount, as in thiscase the price is smaller than the face value.Ex 2: Suppose you are told that a bond with a face value of $50is sold at par. What can you say about the price of this bond? 25
26. Interest Rates or Yields Up (Down) = Prices Down (Up)• As interest rates increase, the value of a bond decreases; conversely as interest rates decrease, the value of a bond increases. Therefore generally the following holds:• coupon rate < required yield, then price < face value bond is said to be selling at a discount.• coupon rate = required yield, then price = face value bond is said to be selling at par.• coupon rate > required yield, then price > face value bond is said to be selling at a premium. 26 MEMORIZE!!!
27. Bond Prices Over TimeBondPrice Premium Bond ?$1000 Discount Bond time 1 2 3 … Maturity 27
28. Rate of ReturnWe define Rate of Return over a specified period of time as: total incomeRate of return = investment Coupon income + price changeRate of return = Price todayThe price change divided by the bond price today is called Capital Gain (or Loss). 28
29. Rate of Return C ( P P0 ) 1 Rate of Return P0• P0 – price paid for a bond,• P1 – expected bond price at time 1 , when you sell the bond,• C – coupon payments received between buying and selling • Expected vs. Realized return. 29
30. Example 1:You pay $900 for a bond whichhas an annual coupon of $120. You sell it for$930 after one year. What is your rate ofreturn? $120 + ($930 - $900) Rate of return = $900 Rate of return=16.67% 30
31. More Definitions• Current Yield - The annual coupon of the bond divided by price. Annul Coupon Current Yield Price• This return ignores the effect of price changes (capital gain or loss).• The current yield is a rough approximation of the expected return on the bond. 31
32. Example 1: C = $90, t = 10 years, Po = 1050. $90 Current yield = 8.57% $1050Example 2: C = $90, t = 10 years, Po = 900. $90 Current yield = 10% $900 32
33. Rate of Return versus YTMIs the rate of return higher than or lowerthan the YTM?What can we say if the YTM doesnot change? 33
34. Rate of Return versus YTM• Example 1: John buys a bond when its time to maturity is 9 years, r is 12% and sells after a year when r is 10%. The coupon rate is 8%. Find the rate of return from this investment.• Example 2: A bond pays annual coupon of $100. Ann bought the bond 1 year back when YTM was 9%. If Ann sells the bond today, YTM now being 9.5%, find the annual rate of return on her bond. This bond will mature in another 5 years. 34
35. Rate of Return versus YTMThe above examples illustrate:1. If YTM decreases (ex.1), the rate of return is higher then the initial YTM. Why? (Price of the bond grows)2. If YTM increases (ex.2), the rate of return is lower then the initial YTM. Why? (Price of the bond goes down)3. If YTM does not change_____________________. 35
36. Interest Rate Risk• Bond price fluctuates as interest rate changes.• If interest rate suddenly goes up, will your bond be worth more or less? What if interest rate goes down?• Will a 3-year bond or a 30-year bond be subject to more interest rate risk? 36
37. Interest Rate Risk• Two bonds: a 6% coupon bond with 3 years to maturity and a 6% coupon bond with 30 years to maturity. Both sell at face value today ($1,000). What is the discount rate?• What would be the price of each bond today if the discount rate PV3=1055.5 ;% change=5.6%• drops to 4%? PV30 =1345.84 ; % change=34.6% PV30=774.84 ; % change= -22.5%• jumps to 8%? PV3 =948.46 ; % change= -5.1%37
38. Interest Rate Risk 3,000 When the discount 2,500 rate(yield) equals the 6% coupon rate, both bonds 2,000 30 yr bond sell at face value$ Bond Price 1,500 1,000 3 yr bond 500 - 0 2 4 6 8 10 Discount Rate 38
39. Interest Rate Risk• The fluctuations in price due to changes in interest rates is called interest rate risk. This risk is presented in a bond even if the future cash flows are risk free or will be received with certainty.• This risk increases as maturity increases. In another word, long term bond prices are more sensitive to the interest rate than prices of short- term bonds.• Interest rate risk increases as coupon rate decreases. 39
40. Yield Curve / Term Structure• The relationship between yields and time to maturity is called a yield curve 7% 6% 5% Yield 4% 3% 2% 5Yr 10Yr 15Yr 20Yr 25Yr 30Yr• The Yield curve for Treasury Bonds is in the Wall Street Journal every day.• These yields are influenced by the expectations of future 40 interest rates and inflation.
41. Default Risk• Coupons and principal will always be repaid if U.S. government is the borrower.• What about corporations?• Because there is a default risk, there is a default premium.• Default premium is the difference between yield on corporate bond and on U.S. government bond of same coupon and maturity.• The two largest rating agencies are Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s. 41
42. Ratings Moody’s S&P• Aaa • AAA• Aa • AA • A investment grade• A • BBB bonds• Baa• Ba • BB “junk “bonds or• B • B speculative grade• Caa • CCC• Ca • Cc• C • C • D bonds in default 42
43. Example• A bond’s credit rating provides a guide to its risk. Long-term bonds rated Aa currently offer yield to maturity of 7.5 percent. A-rated bonds sell at yield of 7.8 percent. If a 10-year bond with a coupon rate of 7 percent is downgraded by Moody’s from Aa to A rating, what is the likely effect on the bond price? 43
44. Questions• Are all bonds subject to default risk?• Are all bonds subject to interest rate risk?• Is a default-free bond risk-free? 44
45. Other Types of Bonds• Floating Rate Bonds - Bonds where the coupon rate can change over time.• Convertible Bonds - Bonds where a right (option) is granted to the investor to exchange the bond for some other specified security, usually common stock, before the Maturity Date.• Zero-Coupon Bonds - Bonds that pay only the face value at maturity, no coupons.• Callable Bonds - Can be bought back early.• Put Bond -allows holder to redeem for par. 45
47. Government Bonds• Treasury bills:bonds with maturity of one year or less• Treasury notes:bonds with maturity from 1 year to 10 years• Treasury bonds:maturity more than 10 years 47
48. What you should know about bonds• Distinguish among the bond’s coupon rate, current yield, and yield to maturity.• Find the market price of a bond given its yield to maturity, find a bond’s yield given its price, and demonstrate why prices and yields vary inversely.• Show why bonds exhibit interest rate risk.• Understand why investors pay attention to bond ratings and demand a higher interest rate for bonds with low ratings. 48
