    Solution for Question no 2

    Idea Solution For Question 2

    NPV Bond Pricing Equation: vu handout page#123
    Bond Price = PV = C1/ (1+rD) + C2/ (1+rD) t2+ C3 / (1+rD)t3 +.. + PAR / (1+rD)n3

    Where

    Pv = Bound value
    C= Coupon payment Pa = 2000*10.100= 200 C1 ...C2 For each year
    rD= Required rate of return = 14%=0.14
    PAR = Par value or face value= 2000
    Maturity period
    Bound A = t 3 n3
    Bound B = t 5 n5

    Idea Solution Of Question 1
    Question stock beta#1
    Vu handout page#105

    Average Required ROR for all rational investors in an Efficient Market can be estimated using the CAPM Theory: Beta and Risk Free Rate of Return.
    Total Rate of Return (ROR) for Single Stock = Dividend Yield + Capital Gain. GORDON’S FORMULA FOR COMMON STOCK PRICING OR VALUATION USES REQUIRED RETURN r = DIV/Po + g. In Efficient Markets, Price of Stocks is based on Market Risk (or Beta). We can formulate the required rate of return in terms of Beta risk so how can we use beta coefficient to calculate the required rate of return for the average investor in the market. The answer to it is the

    Vu handout page # 114

    Po* = DIV1 / [ (rRF + (rM - rRF ) βA ) - g]

    Where
    Po*=80
    DIV1= 5
    g= 7%
    rRF = 6%
    rM = 10%
    βA ) ?
    Now put the values and get answer which is = βA 1.8125

    MGT201 Assignment 2 Solution

    Question#1 solution:

    ROR = D1V1 / P0 + g
    ROR = (5/80) + 0.07
    ROR = 0.0625 + 0.07
    ROR = 0.1325*100
    ROR = 13.25%

    rA = rRF + (rM - rRF) beta
    rA= 13.25%
    rRF = 6%
    rM = 10%
    Beta = ?

    13.25% = 6% + (10% - 6%) beta
    13.25% - 6% = (4%) beta
    7.25% = (4%) beta
    Beta = 7.25%/4%
    Beta = 1.8125

    Solution Q # 2 (Bond Valuation)

    a) Given Data (Bond A):
    Coupon payment per annum (C) = 2000*10%= 2000* 0.1 = 200
    Required rate of return (rD) = 14% = 0.14
    Par value or face value (PAR) = 2000
    Maturity Period or Term = 3 Years
    Bond Price (PV) =?

    We know that:
    PV = C1/ (1+rD) + C2 /(1+rD) 2 + C3 / (1+rD)3 + PAR / (1+rD)3
    PV = 200/ (1 + 0.14) + 200/ (1 + 0.14)2 + 200/ (1+ 0.14)3 + 2000/ (1 + 0.14)3
    PV = (200/1.14) + (200/ 1.2996) + (200/1.4815) + (2000/ 1.4815)
    PV = 175.4386 + 153.8935 + 134.9983 + 1349.9831
    PV = 1814.3135 (Bond A)

    b) Given Data (Bond B):
    Coupon payment per annum (C) = 2000*10%= 2000* 0.1 = 200
    Required rate of return (rD) = 14% = 0.14
    Par value or face value (PAR) = 2000
    Maturity Period or Term = 5 Years
    Bond Price (PV) =?

    We know that:
    PV = C1/ (1+rD) + C2 /(1+rD) 2 + C3 / (1+rD)3 + C4/(1+rD)4 + C5/(1+rD)5+ PAR / (1+rD)5PV = 200/ (1+ 0.14) + 200/(1+0.14)2 + 200/(1+0.14)3 + 200/ (1+0.14)4 + 200/(1+0.14)5
    +2000/(1+0.14)5
    PV = (200/1.14) + (200/ 1.2996) + (200/1.4815) + (200/1.6889) + (200/1.9254) + 2000/1.9254
    PV = 175.4386 + 153.8935 + 134.9983 + 118.4203 + 103.8745 + 1038.7452
    PV = 1725.3704 (Bond B)
    c) If ABC wants to minimize the Interest Rate Risk, which bond should be purchased? Why?


    Answer:

    When interest rate rises, bond price falls. Inversely, when interest rate falls, bond price rises. The longer the maturity period, the greater is the interest rate risk.
    According to LAWARENCE J. GITMAN FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT (12th EDITION) interest rate risk is the market interest rate fluctuation that directly affects the bond’s value that have constant coupon payment, to reduce the fear of market interest risk diversify the portfolio as it can be spread and chose the bond with shorter duration.

    So, ABC should purchase bond A having the shorter maturity period than bond B.
    Here price of bond A is 1814.3135 is greater than the price of bond B, which is 1725.3704.
