**Question**

Question;A 25-year, 8% semiannual coupon bond with a par value of $1,000 may be called in 4 years at a call price of $1,100. The bond sells for $950. (Assume that the bond has just been issued.);a. What is the bond's yield to maturity? Round your answer to two decimal places. %;b. What is the bond's current yield? Round your answer to two decimal places. %;c. What is the bond's capital gain or loss yield? Round your answer to two decimal places. %;d. What is the bond's yield to call? Round your answer to two decimal places. %;The earnings, dividends, and common stock price of Shelby Inc. are expected to grow at 6% per year in the future. Shelby's common stock sells for $20.75 per share, its last dividend was $1.50, and the company will pay a dividend of $1.59 at the end of the current year.;a.Using the discounted cash flow approach, what is its cost of equity? Round your answer to two decimal places. %;b. If the firm's beta is 1.0, the risk-free rate is 5%, and the expected return on the market is 12%, then what would be the firm's cost of equity based on the CAPM approach? Round your answer to two decimal places. %;c.If the firm's bonds earn a return of 11%, and analysts estimate the market risk premium is 3 to 5 percent, then what would be your estimate of rs using the over-own-bond-yield-plus-judgmental-risk-premium approach? Round your answer to two decimal places. (Hint: Use the midpoint of the risk premium range). %;d.On the basis of the results of parts a through c, what would be your estimate of Shelby's cost of equity? Assume Shelby values each approach equally. Round your answer to two decimal places;The YTMs of three $1,000 face value bonds that mature in 10 years and have the same level of risk are equal. Bond A has an 8% annual coupon, Bond B has a 10% annual coupon, and Bond C has a 12% annual coupon. Bond B sells at par. Assuming interest rates remain constant for the next 10 years, which of the following statements is CORRECT?a. Bond A sells at a discount (its price is less than par), and its price is expected to increase over the next year.;b. Over the next year, Bond A's price is expected to decrease, Bond B's price is expected to stay the same, and Bond C's price is expected to increase.;c. Bond C sells at a premium (its price is greater than par), and its price is expected to increase over the next year.;d. Since the bonds have the same YTM, they should all have the same price, and since interest rates are not expected to change, their prices should all remain at their current levels until maturity.;e. Bond A's current yield will increase each year.
