QUESTION1:
Netpresent value is a discounting capital budgeting technique thatcalculates cash flows taking into account time value of money throughthe discounting rate. The negative value for the first year indicatesthe initial outlay of the project.

Net Present Value

Discountingrate of 10% e formula = (1 + r) ^ n.
Presentvalues are obtained through the multiplication of discounting factorby cash flow.
QUESTION2:
Ata rate of 20%, time duration to double the sales would be?
FutureValue (FV) = Present Value (PV) (1+R) ^ n (the Number of years)
Assumedoubling of sales of $ 1
$2 = $ 1 (1+.02) ^ n
Log2 = n Log 1.2
Log2= n
Log1.2
N= 3.8 years.
QUESTION3:
Assetsthat pay interest frequently semiannually, quarterly or on a dailyperiod will have higher future values as their interests are gainedoften and frequently after compounding. The more an investment isfrequently compounded, the greater the future value obtained[ CITATION Eug09 l 1033 ].Effective Annual Rate increases as an investment if frequentlycompounded resulting to a resulting to increment in the investment’sfuture value.
Exampleto show the interest differences on an annual and quarterlyperspective
Presentvalue = $ 1,000
Interestrate = 10%
Formula= Future Value (FV) = Present value (PV) (1 + r/period (p)) ^ (year *period)
Annualperspective:
FV= $ 1,000 (1 + 0.1/1) ^ 1
FV= $1,100
Interestgain = $ 1,100 – $ 1,000
Interestgain= $ 100
Quarterlyperspective:
FV= $ 1,000 (1 + 0.1/4) ^ 4
FV= $1,103.81289
Interestgain = $ 1,103.80 – $ 1,000
Interestgain= $ 103.80
Asproven in the earlier statement
$103.80 for the quarterly period > $ 100 for annual perspective
QUESTION4:
Effectiveannual rate at a nominal rate of 12%
Formula:
EffectiveAnnual Rate (EAR) = (1+ r/n) ^n – 1

Semiannual basis Compounding
EAR= (1+ 0.12/2) ^2 – 1
EAR= (1.06) ^2 – 1
EAR= 1.1236 – 1
EAR= 0.1236
EAR= 12.36%

Quarterly basis Compounding
EAR= (1+ 0.12/4) ^4 – 1
EAR= (1.03) ^4 – 1
EAR= 1.125509 – 1
EAR= 0.125509
EAR= 12.5509%

Monthly basis Compounding
EAR= (1+ 0.12/12) ^12 – 1
EAR= (1.01) ^12 – 1
EAR= 1.126825 – 1
EAR= 0.126825
EAR= 12.6825%

Daily basis Compounding
EAR= (1+ 0.12/365) ^365 – 1
EAR= (1.01) ^365 – 1
EAR= 1.127475 – 1
EAR= 0.127475
EAR= 12.7475%
QUESTION5:
Depositvalue = $ 100
Interestrate = 11.33463%
Tobe compounded daily for a period of 9 months.
Convertthe interest rate to a daily rate through the division of the annualrate by 365.
=11.33463%/365
=0.03105378%.
Convertthe duration into days.
=9/12 * 365
=273.75 which is equivalent to 274 days
Compounding= Deposit value (1+ Rate) ^ period
=100 (1 + 1.0003105378) ^ 274
=108.8798
Asat October 1^{st},the deposit would have grown to $108.88
QUESTION6 & 7:
Bonddetails:
Period= 10 years.
Parvalue of the bond = $ 1,000.
Annualcoupon rate = 10%.
Requiredrate of return = 10%.
QUESTION6:
Inflationrose by 3% resulting in a rate of return of 13%.
BondPrice = C * (1 – (1/ (1 + R) ^n))/R + P/ (1 + R) ^n
Where
C= Coupon rate value of the bond
=10% * 1,000
=$ 100.
R= required rate of return
n= Period of bond maturity.
P= Par value of the bond.
=$ 100 * ((1(1/ (1.13) ^10)) + $ 1,000/ (1.13) ^10
=$ 100 * 0.70541165/0.13 + 294.588348
=542.624346 + 294.588348
=837.2127
Itis considered to be a Discount Bond. The coupon rate remains constantat 10%, but the market rate goes up due to investor’s expectationsto 13% resulting in the fall in the bond price below the par valuestated. A par value is expected to be fixed, but it fell to $837.2127 due to the increase in expected rate of return that is abovethe coupon rate making it a discount bond.
QUESTION7:
Similarformula will be used to determine the bond price and the type.
BondPrice = C * (1 – (1/ (1 + R) ^n))/R + P/ (1 + R) ^n
=$ 100 * ((1(1/ (1.07) ^10)) + $ 1,000/ (1.07) ^10
=$ 100 * 0.49165071/0.07 + 508.349291
=702.358157 + 508.349291
=1,210.70745
Itis considered to be a Premium Bond. It is because the bond price hasrisen from $ 1,000 to $ 1,210.70745 due to a decline in the marketrate expected by the investors. A par value is expected to be fixed,but it rose to $ 1,210.70745 due to the decrease in expected rate ofreturn that is below the coupon rate making it a premium bond.
QUESTION8:
Part1
Presentvalue of bond = $ 887
Futurevalue of bond = $ 1,000
Interestper year = $ 90 (9% * $ 1,000)
Periodof bond = 10 years
Bondprice (B) = C/2 * ((1(1+YTM/2) ^ 2*N)) / (YTM/2))) + ((P/ (1+YTM/2)^ 2*N))
887= 90/2 * ((1(1+YTM/2) ^ 2*10)) / (YTM/2))) + ((1,000/ (1+YTM/2) ^2*10))
YTMrate using a YTM calculator will be 10.88%
Part2
Presentvalue of bond = $ 1,134.20
Futurevalue of bond = $ 1,000
Interestper year = $ 90 (9% * $ 1,000)
Periodof bond = 10 years
Bondprice (B) = C/2 * ((1(1+YTM/2) ^ 2*N)) / (YTM/2))) + ((P/ (1+YTM/2)^ 2*N))
1,134.20= 90/2 * ((1(1+YTM/2) ^ 2*10)) / (YTM/2))) + ((1,000/ (1+YTM/2) ^2*10))
YTMrate using a YTM calculator will be 7.10%
Therelationship between required rate of return and bond’s coupon rateis that for a discount bond, the rate of return will be higher thanthe bond’s coupon rate resulting in a decline in the price of thebond. In the case of a premium bond, the rate of return will be lowerthan the bond’s coupon rate resulting in an increase in the priceof the bond[ CITATION Eug09 l 1033 ].Such a relationship indicates if the rate of return were equal to thecoupon rate, the bond price would be equal to the par value of $1,000.
QUESTION9:
CalculatingTotal Return, current yield and the capital gains yield for the twotypes of bonds discount and premium bonds. Since there is no timestipulated for the consideration of values, I shall calculate using 2years and the maturity period of 10 years.
Part1: Discount Bond
Period= 10 years
Parvalue = $ 1,000
Annualcoupon rate = 9%
Requiredrate of return = 10.88%
Bondprice was $ 887
Usingthe par value level in 2^{nd}year
Calculatingthe capital gain that arose in the second year will resultcalculating the bond price using n (the number of years) as 9 yearsto maturity.
BondPrice = C * (1 – (1/ (1 + R) ^n))/R + P/ (1 + R) ^n
=$ 90 * (1 – (1/ (1 + 10.88%) ^9))/ 10.88% + $ 1,000/ (1 + 10.88%)^9
==$ 90 * ((1(1/ (1.1088) ^9)) + $ 1,000/ (1.1088) ^9
=$ 90 * 0.60525099/0.1088 + 394.749006
=500.667269 + 394.749006
=895.416275
Thecapital gain between the first and second year will be
=$ 895.4 – $ 887.0
=$ 8.40
Currentyield
=Annual coupon rate interest/ Discount bond price in the first year
=$ 90/ $ 887
=$ 0.1015
=10.15%
Capitalgain yield
=Capital gain in between the years/ Discount bond price in the firstyear
=$ 8.40/ $ 887
=0.0095
=0.95%
Totalrate of return
=Current yield + Capital gains yield
TR= 10.15%+0.95%
=11.10%
Usingthe par value level in 10^{th}year
Calculatingthe capital gain that arose in the tenth year will result calculatingthe bond price using n (the number of years) as 0 years to maturity.
BondPrice = C * (1 – (1/ (1 + R) ^n))/R + P/ (1 + R) ^n
=$ 90 * (1 – (1/ (1 + 10.88%) ^0))/ 10.88% + $ 1,000/ (1 + 10.88%)^0
==$ 90 * ((1(1/ (1.1088) ^0)) + $ 1,000/ (1.1088) ^0
=$ 90 * 0 + $ 1,000
=0 + $ 1,000
=$ 1,000
Thecapital gain at maturity
=$ 1,000 – $ 887.0
=$ 113.0
Currentyield
=Annual coupon rate interest/ Discount bond price in the first year
=$ 90/ $ 887
=$ 0.1015
=10.15%
Capitalgain yield
=Capital gain in between the years/ Discount bond price in the firstyear
=$ 113/ $ 887
=0.1274
=12.74%
Totalrate of return
=Current yield + Capital gains yield
TR= 10.15%+12.74%
=22.89%
Part2: Premium Bond
Period= 10 years
Parvalue = $ 1,000
Annualcoupon rate = 9%
Requiredrate of return = 7.10%
Bondprice was $ 1,134.20
Usingthe par value level in 2^{nd}year
Calculatingthe capital gain that arose in the second year will resultcalculating the bond price using n (the number of years) as 9 yearsto maturity.
BondPrice = C * (1 – (1/ (1 + R) ^n))/R + P/ (1 + R) ^n
=$ 90 * (1 – (1/ (1 + 7.10%) ^9))/ 7.10% + $ 1,000/ (1 + 7.10%) ^9
==$ 90 * ((1(1/ (1.071) ^9)) + $ 1,000/ (1. 071) ^9
=$ 90 * 0.46062009/0.071 + 539.379906
=583.884621 + 539.379906
=$ 1,123.26453
Thecapital gain between the first and second year will be
=$ 1,123.3–$ 1,134.20
= $ 10.9
Currentyield
=Annual coupon rate interest/ Discount bond price in the first year
=$ 90/ $ 1,134.2
=$ 0.07935108
=7.94%
Capitalgain yield
=Capital gain in between the years/ Discount bond price in the firstyear
= $ 10.9/ $ 1,134.20
= 0.009610298
= 0.96%
Totalrate of return
=Current yield + Capital gains yield
TR= 7.94%0.96%
=6.98%
Usingthe par value level in 10^{th}year
Calculatingthe capital gain that arose in the tenth year will result calculatingthe bond price using n (the number of years) as 0 years to maturity.
BondPrice = C * (1 – (1/ (1 + R) ^n))/R + P/ (1 + R) ^n
