...Finance and the Financial Environment In a beauty contest for companies, the winner is . . . General Electric. 11 Or at least General Electric is the most admired company in America, according to Fortune magazine’s annual survey. The other top ten finalists are Cisco Systems, WalMart Stores, Southwest Airlines, Microsoft, Home Depot, Berkshire Hathaway, Charles Schwab, Intel, and Dell Computer. What do these companies have that separates them from the rest of the pack? According to more than 4,000 executives, directors, and security analysts, these companies have the highest average scores across eight attributes: (1) innovativeness, (2) quality of management, (3) employee talent, (4) quality of products and services, (5) long-term investment value, (6) financial soundness, (7) social responsibility, and (8) use of corporate assets. These companies also have an incredible focus on using technology to reduce costs, to reduce inventory, and to speed up product delivery.

Bond Price Yields Ch10

...Chapter 10 Bond Prices and Yields Catastrophe bond: Typically issued by an insurance company. They are similar to an insurance policy in that the investor receives coupons and par value, but takes a loss in part or all of the principal if a major insurance claim is filed against the issuer. This is provided in exchange for higher than normal coupons. Eurobond: They are bonds issued in the currency of one country but sold in other national markets. Zero-coupon bond: Zero-coupon bonds are bonds that pay no coupons but do pay a par value at maturity. Samurai bond: Yen-denominated bonds sold in Japan by non-Japanese issuers are called Samurai bonds. Junk bond: Those rated BBB or above (S&P, Fitch) or Baa and above (Moody’s) are considered investment grade bonds, while lower-rated bonds are classified as speculative grade or junk bonds. Convertible bond: Convertible bonds may be exchanged, at the bondholder’s discretion, for a specified number of shares of stock. Convertible bondholders “pay” for this option by accepting a lower coupon rate on the security. Serial bond: A serial bond is an issue in which the firm sells bonds with staggered maturity dates. As bonds mature sequentially, the principal repayment burden for the firm is spread over time just as it is with a sinking fund. Serial bonds do not include call provisions. Equipment obligation bond: A bond that is issued with specific equipment pledged as collateral against the......

What Is a Bond?

...1) What are a bond’s key features? a) The promises of the bond issuer and the rights of the bondholders are set forth in great detail in a bond’s indenture. b) The term to maturity of a bond is the number of years the debt is outstanding or the number of years remaining prior to final principal payment. The maturity date of a bond refers to the date that the debt will cease to exist, at which time the issuer will redeem the bond by paying the outstanding balance. c) The par value of a bond is the amount that the issuer agrees to repay the bondholder at or by the maturity date. d) The coupon rate, also called the nominal rate, is the interest rate that the issuer agrees to pay to the bondholder each year. The annual amount of interest payment made to bondholders during the term of the bond is called the coupon. The coupon is determined by multiplying the coupon rate by the par value of the bond. e) There are certain bonds that do not make periodic coupon payments, such as zero coupon bonds, step up notes, deferred coupon bonds and floating rate bonds. 2) What are call provisions and sinking fund provisions? Do these provisions make bonds more or less risky? f) An issuer generally wants the right to retire a bond issue prior to the stated maturity date. The issuer recognizes that at some time in the future interest rates may fall sufficiently below the issue’s coupon rate so that redeeming the issue and replacing it with another......

Bond Valuation

...Bond Valuation By Anuj Joshi Note 1 Bond Valuation Fixed income paying securities. 1. Theoretical price or value of bond depends upon. i. Coupon Payment : Fixed amount of interest to be received after prescribed frequency. ii. Maturity Value [Unless otherwise given is exam, we should take face value] iii. Discount Rate : It should always be market interest rate 2. What is market interest rate Market interest rate is derived from comparable listed bond. The comparison is based on risk and life of the bond. E.g. If we are valuing a bond which is unlisted and have 5 years of life, then we should look for a bond which is similar in risk profile (i.e. same credit rating)and having similar life. The YTM (Yield to Maturity) of listed bond is called market interest rate The YTM of a bond is nothing but IRR of the bond. 3. Value of a bond = PV of Coupon Amount + PV of Maturity Value [Remember CF and discount rate are before tax] Concept Point: i. Coupon rate is a historical rate and should never be used as a discount rate. In exam, if no other information is available, then only we should assume coupon rate of interest as market rate of interest. ii. Remember, Cost of Capital or Discount Rate is a future concept and it represents opportunity cost on the date of valuation. iii. YTM of a similar bond (i.e. current market interest rate) is the appropriate discount rate for bond valuation. How to value a bond which pays interest at a frequency lower than annually (e...

Solutions to Bonds and Discounts

...Answers to Concept Review Questions 1. Managers need to understand how bonds and stocks are priced because (1) firms regularly issue stocks and bonds to raise money for investment (2) understanding how securities are priced is helpful when conducting an acquisition or a divestiture, (3) the stock price is an objective signal of how managers are performing, and (4) finance theory teaches that the goal of the manager should be to maximize the firm’s stock price. 5. The coupon rate equals the annual coupon payment divided by par value. The coupon yield equals the annual coupon payment divided by the bond’s market price. 6. A bond sells at a discount when the bond’s coupon rate is lower than the market’s required rate of return on the bond. 11. An issuer benefits from an option to call a bond, because such an option allows the issuer to lock in a more favorable interest rate if rates should fall.. The option to convert bonds into common stock benefits bondholders. Once the stock price rises high enough, the value of the bonds starts to behave like the stock’s value—the prices start to rise. So convertible bonds offer investors some minimal level of return plus a lot of upside potential. 13. The price of a Treasury note quoted as 98:10 is 98 10/32 percent of par value or $983.125.

Bonds and Their Evaluations

...Chapter 7(13E) Bonds and Their Valuation Answers to End-of-Chapter Questions 7-1 From the corporation’s viewpoint, one important factor in establishing a sinking fund is that its own bonds generally have a higher yield than do government bonds; hence, the company saves more interest by retiring its own bonds than it could earn by buying government bonds. This factor causes firms to favor the second procedure. Investors also would prefer the annual retirement procedure if they thought that interest rates were more likely to rise than to fall, but they would prefer the government bond purchase program if they thought rates were likely to fall. In addition, bondholders recognize that, under the government bond purchase scheme, each bondholder would be entitled to a given amount of cash from the liquidation of the sinking fund if the firm should go into default, whereas under the annual retirement plan, some of the holders would receive a cash benefit while others would benefit only indirectly from the fact that there would be fewer bonds outstanding. On balance, investors seem to have little reason for choosing one method over the other, while the annual retirement method is clearly more beneficial to the firm. The consequence has been a pronounced trend toward annual retirement and away from the accumulation scheme. 7-2 Yes, the statement is true. 7-3 False. Short-term bond prices are less sensitive than long-term bond prices to interest rate......

Yield Bond

...MEASURING YIELD CHAPTER SUMMARY In Chapter 2 we showed how to determine the price of a bond, and we described the relationship between price and yield. In this chapter we discuss various yield measures and their meaning for evaluating the relative attractiveness of a bond. We begin with an explanation of how to compute the yield on any investment. COMPUTING THE YIELD OR INTERNAL RATE OF RETURN ON ANY INVESTMENT The yield on any investment is the interest rate that will make the present value of the cash flows from the investment equal to the price (or cost) of the investment. Mathematically, the yield on any investment, y, is the interest rate that satisfies the equation. ------------------------------------------------- P = ------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------- where CFt = cash flow in year t, P = price of the investment, N = number of years. The yield calculated from this relationship is also called the internal rate of return. ------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------- Solving for the yield (y) requires a trial-and-error (iterative) procedure. The objective is to find the yield that will make the present value of the cash flows equal to the price. Keep in mind that the yield computed is the yield for the period. That is, if the cash flows are semiannual, the yield is a semiannual yield. If the cash flows are monthly, the......
