Year 1 = $1200, Year 2 = $1,100, Year 3 = $800, Year 4 = $600 28. *Discounted cash flow analysis If the appropriate discount rate for the following cash flows is 9.29 percent per year, what is the present value of the cash flows? Year 1 = $1,900, Year 2 = $2,300, Year 3 = $4,500, Year 4 = $5100 Ch.6 6. Bond prices App Store Co. issed 15- year bonds one year ago at a coupon rate of 6.1 percent. The bonds make semiannual payments. If the YTM on these bonds is 5.3 percent, what is the current bond price? 7. Bond Yields Night Hawk Co. issued 15-year bonds two years ago at a coupon rate of 8.4 percent. The bonds make semiannual payments.

The bond pays an 8 percent coupon, has a YTM of 6 percent, and has 13 years to maturity. Bond Y is a discount bond making annual payments. This bond pays a 6 percent coupon, has a YTM of 8 percent, and also has 13 years to maturity. What are the prices of these bonds today? If the interest rates remain unchanged, what do you expect the prices of these bonds to be in one year? In three years? In eight years? In 12 years? In 13 years? What's going on here? Illustrate your answers by graphing bond prices versus time to maturity. 16. Interest Rate Risk Both Bond Bill and Bond Ted have 9 percent coupons, make semiannual payments, and are priced at par value. Bond Bill has 3 years to maturity, whereas Bond Ted has 20 years to maturity. If interest rates suddenly rise by 2 percent, what is the percentage change in the price of Bond Bill? Of Bond Ted? If rates were to suddenly fall by 2 percent instead, what would the percentage change in the price of Bond Bill be then? Of Bond Ted? Illustrate your answers by graphing bond prices versus YTM.
