What is the fair value of this bond?The Price of the Bond is equal to the sum of the present values of all future cash flows (PV of coupon payments + PV of the Face Amount). Coupon Payment = $1,000 × 3.7% = $37. Number of periods = 10 years × 2 = 20 periods Price = = $481.29 + $414.64= $895.94

A10. (Dividend discount model) Assume RHM is expected to pay a total cash dividend of $5.60 next year and its dividends are expected to grow at a rate of 6% per year forever. Assuming annual dividend payments, what is the current market value of a share of RHM stock if the required return on RHM common stock is 10%? P0 = D1 / (r - g) = $5.60 / (0.10 - 0.06) = $140.00 A12. (Required return for a preferred stock) James River $3.38 preferred is selling for $45.25. The preferred dividend is non-growing. What is the required return on James River preferred stock?

PMT = 9.125% x 1,000 / 2 = $45.625 FV = $1,000 PV = -$1,059.42 3. CALC: n = 15 x 2 = 30 r = 8% / 2 = 4% PV = ? PMT = 9.125% x 1,000 / 2 = $45.625 FV = $1,000 PV = -$1,097.27 B. 1. CALC: n = 1 x 2 = 2 r = 7% / 2 = 3.5% PV = ? PMT = 9.125% x 1,000 / 2 = $45.625 FV = $1,000 PV = -$1,020.18

PMT = 9.125% x 1,000 / 2 = $45.625 FV = $1,000 PV = -$1,010.18 D. Interest-rate risk varies directly with maturity.
