Hello

Please note that there is something missing in your question. How many years to maturity does the bond have?

Hello again

You cannot calculate the price f the bond without knowing the years to maturity so if the question does not offer more information, then this is a mistake. Please double check with your instructor.

Which textbook are you using: Title, author's name, and edition?

Thank you

Ok :) My mistake, I misread the first question.

To make up for my mistake, I will answer both questions for the price of one.

If you are up for it I have one more question

Bond Prices and yields. Several years ago, Castles in the Sand, Inc. issued bonds at face value at a yield to maturity of 7% Now with 8 years left until the maturity of the bonds, the company has run into hard times and the yield to maturity on the bonds has increased to 15 percent. What has happened to the price of the bond?

Suppose that investors believe that Castles can make good on the promised coupon payments, but that the company will go bankrupt when the bond matures and the principal comes due. The expectation is that investors will receive only 80 percent of face value at maturity. If they buy the bond today, what yield to maturity do they expect to receive?

Was that a yes or no on this one? It is late and I would like to know if I should stay up for an answer or give up for the night :)
Expert:  Manal Elkhoshkhany replied 7 years ago.

I am sorry I was working on another assignment.

I can hep with this one, but for future questions, please post each question as a separate post so that there is no confusion about which questions were answered and which were not. Just give me 15 minutes max and I will post the solution.

Regards,

Customer: replied 7 years ago.

I will do that

thanks
