Project #41239 - Bond valuation

Bond Valuation

Introduction

The intent of this assignment is for you to demonstrate proficiency in determining the value of a bond. Bonds are used in financing businesses and are also a common security for personal investing purposes, so knowing how to determine the value has implications for both uses.

Instructions

Use the information in the following scenario to practice computing the value of a bond.
Ace Corporation has issued two bonds. The principle is $1,000 on both. Bond A has an 8% semi-annual coupon and Bond B has a 10% semi-annual coupon. Both mature in 10 years. The required rate of return is 9% annually, 4.5% semi-annually.
Use a financial calculator or Excel to compute the value of Bond A and Bond B. If you use a financial calculator, please provide all inputs and outputs. If using Excel, please attach the file to your assignment. How do the values of the bonds compare and how would you put this information to use? Why would such a comparison be useful to a corporation or an individual?
