Bond Concepts: Bond Pricing
It is important for prospective bond buyers to know how to determine the price of a bond because it will indicate the yield received should the bond be purchased. In this section, we will run through some bond price calculations for various types of bond instruments. Bonds can be priced at a premium, discount, or at par. If the bond's price is higher than its par value, it will sell at a premium because its interest rate is higher than current prevailing rates. If the bond's price is lower than its par value, the bond will sell at a discount because its interest rate is lower than current prevailing interest rates. When you calculate the price of a bond, you are

Q1. What is risk premium? How is it measured? When there is an increase in the default risk on corporate bonds (due to bad economic conditions), what will happen to risk premium. Will it shrink or widen? Why?
(See pages 120-22 3rd edition) (see page 114-115 4th edition)
Default risk occurs when the issuer of a bond is unable or unwilling to make interest payments when promised or pay off the face value when bond matures. This could happen to a corporation suffering high losses due to bad economic conditions. Canadian Government bonds are considered to have no default risk, as its backed by the taxation power. These bonds are called default free bonds. The spread between the interest

Bond market link having long-term financing needs with investors willing to place funds in long-term interest bearing securities (UN, TW; 2001). When a corporation (or government) wishes toborrow money from the public on a long term basis, itusually does so by issuing or selling debt securities. Theyare generally called bonds (Ross, 1998).A corporate bond is security representing a long-term promise to pay a certain sum of money at certain time over the course of the loan with fixed rate of interest payable to holder of the bond.

On 31-Dec-14 we made the following entry:
Interest Expense $27.36
Discount on Bond Payable ($2.83*5/6) $2.36
Interest Payable ($30*5/6) $25.00
This transaction was made when the share price was $6, but James had not elected to receive common stock as opposed to his usual $25.00 cash coupon. Now that Kat’s common stock price has jumped above $6 per share, James now elects to receive 5 shares of Kat common stock. This does not change the fact that there is a discount to amortize (i.e. the discount must be present as $960 was paid for the face value of $1000) Therefore we must continue to credit discount on bond payable according to the amortization table provided (1/6 now).

Yield to Maturity
What is yield to maturity?
The rate of return anticipated on a bond if it is held until the maturity date. YTM is considered a long-term bond yield expressed as an annual rate. The calculation of YTM takes into account the current market price, par value, coupon interest rate and time to maturity. It is also assumed that all coupons are reinvested at the same rate. Sometimes this is simply referred to as "yield" for short (Investopedia, 2010, para. 1).

Euro bonds and International bonds
Debt investments that are issued in a country by a non-domestic entity. International bonds are issued in countries outside the United States, in their native country's currency. They pay interest at specific intervals, and pay the principal amount back to the bond's buyer at maturity.
International bonds include eurobonds, foreign bonds and global bonds. A different type of international bond is the Brady bond, which is issued in U.S. currency. Brady bonds are issued in order to help developing countries better manage their international debt.

Someone with a large bond oprtfolio may want to hedge against future interest rate movements. When interest rates rise, bond prices decline. The use of futures can be used to hedge against the likelihood of rising interest rates. When the hedging is balanced, the gains/losses in the cash holdings will be offset by gains/losses in futures account. Hedging bond portfolios with futures contracts, will be done by holding short positions.

In this paper, we apply the trade-off theory of capital structure to Microsoft. We use data for bond ratings, bond risk premiums, and levered CAPM betas to compute the cost of equity and the weighted average cost of capital for Microsoft at different debt levels. This study shows the impact of increasing financial leverage on WACC. As financial leverage increases, the WACC decreases until the optimal debt ratio is reached, after which, the WACC

All you really have to remember is that trans means "across" (as in transatlantic or transcontinental) and that cis is the opposite. It is a simple and visual way of telling the two isomers apart. So why do we need another system?There are problems as compounds get more complicated. For example, could you name these two isomers using cis and trans?Because everything attached to the carbon-carbon double bond is different, there aren't any obvious things which you can think of as being "cis" or "trans" to each other.

CDS (Credit Default Swap) is designed to transfer risk from bond holders to CDS issuers. Bond holders buy bonds from a company and buy CDS from insurance company at the same time to make sure even the company default; the bond holders can get the par value back from insurance company. We will look at the CDS spread of Delphi for this question. After we plotted in the data, we find out that the overall CDS spread are abnormally large during the year of 2005 and 2008. The high CDS spreads indicates the unsuccessful operation of Delphi at that time and investors perceiving the possibility of Delphi defaulting on its bond payment.

The main reason may be that the Governments are a big part of this market. Because unlike a share, a bond is a debt contract not a proportion of capital.
Usually, the international bond market is divided in three entities: the domestic bonds, the foreign bonds and the Eurobonds. The Eurobonds segment of the international market is, according to David.

In finance, the net present value (NPV) or net present worth (NPW) of a time series of cash flows, both incoming and outgoing, is defined as the sum of the present values (PVs) of the individual cash flows of the same entity.
In the case when all future cash flows are incoming (such as coupons and principal of a bond) and the only outflow of cash is the purchase price, the NPV is simply the PV of future cash flows minus the purchase price (which is its own PV). NPV is a central tool in discounted cash flow (DCF) analysis and is a standard method for using the time value of money to appraise long-term projects.

sweating about this right now), whilst people will want to lend/save money because the returns are good. If more people want to borrow money than people want to lend/save (demand>supply), it is going to be tough to get a loan, so people will be willing to pay a higher interest rate to secure their loan (increase in interest rates). If more people have excess money that they want to lend/save and fewer people want to borrow money (supply>demand), then they will be willing to accept a lower interest rate, just so they can get some return on their money (decrease in interest rates). Interest rates change until demand is equal to supply.

Research shows that children who are abused grow up to be abusive because of copying ones behavior and they grow with it into adulthood. Children who abused grow up to be criminals and end up in prisons. These theories try to explain how parents and children should relate in their families (Champe, 2012).
