What is the yield to maturity of a nine-year bond that pays a coupon rate of 20% per year, has a $1,000 par value, and is currently priced at $1,407? Round your answer to the nearest whole percent and assume annual coupon payments.
Since the coupon rate is 20% per year and par is 1000
coupons are $200
so the present value
stream of payments is ? $200(1+i)^(-n) for n=1 to 9 plus $1000(1+i)^(-9)
i is the rate as a decimal and it is the value of this expression nearest [ [ [ to $1,407
I'm not sure the correct response is there because i=0.062 gives this result. However we ignore
the return of the $1,000 9 years from now then i=0.052
produces a $1408.98 value for the stream of payments.
