29. A bond which matures in three years has a face value of \$1000, and a coupon
interest rate (printed on the bond) of 7% (this means that the bond will pay \$70 in one
year, another \$70 in two years, and in three years will pay another \$70 and return the face
value of \$1000). If the current interest rate in the economy is 5%, then you would
expect this bond to sell today for (to the nearest penny):
A) \$1000 B) \$1060 C) \$1054.46 D) \$1065.54
E) \$940 F) \$947.51 G) \$932.49 H) \$960
I) \$1040 J) \$1060.40 K) \$1059.60 L) \$1120
M) none of the above
30. A bond which matures in two years has a face value of \$1000, and a coupon interest
rate (printed on the bond) of 10% (this means that the bond will pay \$100 in one year,
and in two years will pay another \$100 and return the face value of \$1000). If the bond
is currently selling for \$1044.89, what is the current interest rate that makes this bond just
worth buying (to the nearest one decimal point)?
A) 0% B) 1% C) 2% D) 3% E) 3.3% F) 4% G) 4.5%
H) 5% I) 6% J) 6.7% K) 6.9% L) 7% M) 7.2% N) 7.5%
O) 7.6% P) 7.8% Q) 8.1% R) 8.2% S) 8.5% T) 8.8% U) 9%
V) 9.1% W) 9.2% X) 9.9% Y) 10% Z) none of the above
31. The government issues a 10-year bond with a face value of \$10,000 and a coupon
rate of 4%. A financial entrepreneur takes the bond and uses it to create new financial
products by “stripping” the coupons off the bond. One of his new products is a “strip
bond” which pays \$10,000 in 10 years, but no interest either during the 10 year period or
at the end. The current interest rate is 4%. You would expect this strip bond to sell
today for (to the nearest penny):
A) \$10,000 B) \$9600 C) \$6000 D) \$6755.64
E) \$6346.48 F) \$6244.36 G) \$3244.36 H) \$5755.64
I) \$5244.36 J) \$6524.79 K) \$6948.72 L) \$4572.11
