# Question: A 30-year maturity, 8% coupon bond paying coupons semi-annually is callable in five years at a call price of $1,100. The bond currently sells at a yield to maturity of 7% (3.5% per half-year):a. What is the yield to call?b. What is the yield to call if the call price is only$1,050?c. What is the yield to call if the call price is $1,100 but the bond can be called in two years instead of five years? Answer a. Yield to call is 3.368% semi-annually, 6.736% annually b. Yield to call is 2.976% semi-annually, 5.952% annually c. Yield to call is 3.031% semi-annually, 6.062% annually See the step by step solution ### Step by Step Solution ## Step 1: Calculation of Yield to call Given [n = 60; i = 3.5; FV = 1000; PMT = 40] Therefore the bond sells for$1,124.72 based on the 3.5% yield to maturity:

Given, now [n = 10; PV = 1124.72; FV = 1100; PMT = 40]

Therefore, yield to call is 3.368% semi-annually, 6.736% annually:

## Step 2: Calculation of Yield to call when call price is $1050 In this scenario, FV =$1050

Therefore yield to call is 2.976% semi-annually, 5.952% annually.

With a lower call price, the yield to call is lower.

## Step 3: Calculation of Yield to call when call price is \$1100 but bond can be called in two years

In this case, given [n = 4; PV = 1124.72 ; FV = 1100; PMT = 40]

Hence, Yield to call is 3.031% semi-annually, 6.062% annually: ### Want to see more solutions like these?
