Chapter 6 : ( part 1 ) Interest rates and Bond valuation I ) Bond : a) What is bond? (debt contract and interest-only loan)  _ It is a debt investment that an investor loans money to an entity ( corporate or governmental ) which borrows the funds for a defined period of time at a variable or fixed interest rate.  _ Bonds are used by companies, municipalities, states and sovereign government to raise money and finance a variety of projects and activities  _ Owners of bonds are debtholders or creditors, of the issuer. With : Municipality : usually an urban administrative division having corporate status and powers of self- government or jurisdiction. b) What is Par value ( face value ) ? (face amount, re-paid at maturity and assume $1000 or $ 100 for corporate bonds )  _Par value for a share refers to the stock value stated in the corporate charter.  _Par value is important for a bond or fixed-income instrument because it determines its maturity value as well as the dollar value of coupon payments.  _ Par value for a bond is typically $1,000 or $100. Shares usually have no par value or very low par value, such as 1 cent per share.  _ The market price of a bond may be above or below par, depending on factors such as the level of interest rates and the bond’s credit status. _ In the case of equity, par value has very little relation to the shares' market price. ( Picture : Bond concepts ) c) What is coupon interest rate ? (stated interest rate, usually = YTM ( yield to maturity at issue ) , multiply by par value to get coupon payment )  _A coupon rate is the yield paid by a fixed income security.  A fixed income security's coupon rate is simply just the annual coupon payments paid by the issuer relative to the bond's face or par value.  The coupon rate is the yield the bond paid on its issue date  This yield, however, will change as the value of the bond changes, thus giving the bond's yield to maturity c) What is maturity? (years until bond must be repaid)  the period of time for which a financial instrument remains outstanding  most commonly used in the context of fixed income investments, such as bonds and deposits d) What is yield to maturity ( YTM ) ?  The market required rate of return for bonds of similar risk and maturity  The discount rate used to value a bond  Return if bond held to maturity  Usually = coupon rate at issue  Quoted as an APR With APR is: * the amount of interest on your total loan amount that you'll pay annually (averaged over the full term of the loan). * A lower APR translates to lower monthly payments.
