BOnds
two bonds have the following terms: bond b has an additional features. It may be redeemed at par after five years (i.e. it has a put feature). Both bonds were initially sold for their face amounts (i.e. \$1,000)
a. If interest rates fall to 7 percent, what will be the decline in the price of each bond from its initial price?
b. If interest rates rise to 9 percent, what will be the decline in the price of each bond from its initial price?
c. Given your answers to questions (a) and (b), what is the trade-off implied by the put option in bond B?
d), Bond B requires the investor to forgo \$4 a year (i.e. \$40) if the bond is in existence for ten years). If interest rates are 8 percent, what is the present value of this forgone interest? If the bond had lacked the put feature but had a coupon of 7.6 percent and a term to maturity of ten years, it would sell for \$973.16 when interest rates were 8 percent. What, then, is the implied cost of the put option?
