Homework 1:

1. Use the table for the question(s) below.

Consider the following four bonds that pay annual coupons:

Bond         Years to maturity           Coupon        YTM

A                 1                      0%           5%

B                 5                      6%           7%

C                10                      10%          9%

D                20                      0%           8%

Assume that the YTM increases by 1% for each of the four bonds listed. Rank the bonds based upon the sensitivity of their prices from least to most sensitive.

2. Use the table for the question(s) below.

The following table summarizes prices of various default-free zero-coupon bonds (expressed as a percentage of face value):

Maturity (years)              1             2            3           4           5

Price (per $100 face value)     94.52         89.68         85.40       81.65        78.35

1) Compute the yield to maturity for each of the five zero-coupon bonds.

2) Plot the zero-coupon yield curve (for the first five years).
