The Burger King bond has an annual coupon rate of 8 percent and matures 20 years from;today. The McDonald's bond has a coupon rate of 8 percent, with interest paid semiannually, and it also matures;in 20 years. If the nominal required;rate of return, rd, is 12 percent, semiannual basis, for both bonds, what is the difference in;current market prices of the two bonds?;a.

This bond is selling at its par value;$1,000. This bond has the same risk as;the security you are thinking of purchasing.;Given this information, what should be the price of the security you are;considering purchasing?;a. $ 898.65;b. $1,060.72;c. $1,037.61;d. $ 943.22;e. $1,145.89;[5].

Semiannual payment bonds;with the same risk (Aaa) and maturity (20 years) as your company's bonds have a;nominal (not EAR) yield of 9 percent.;Your company's treasurer is thinking of issuing at par some $1,000 par;value, 20-year, quarterly payment;bonds. She has asked you to determine;what quarterly interest;payment, in dollars, the company would have to set in order to provide the same;effective annual rate (EAR) as those on the 20-year, semiannual payment;bonds.
