their prices must be equal CLSP 1VfT Arbitrage the Law of One Price If two assets have the same payoffs in every possible state in the future but their prices are not equal there is an opportunity to make an arbitrage profit We say that there exists an arbitrage profit opportunity if we identify that There is no initial investment There is no risk of loss There is a positive probability of pro t Arbitrage a Technical Definition Let CF be the cash flow of an investment strategy at timet and state j Ifthe following conditions are met this strategy generates an arbitrage profit i all the possible cash flows in every possible state and time are positive or zero CF 2 0 for every t and j ii at least one cash flow is strictly positive there exists a pair t j forwhich CF gt 0 Example Is there an arbitrage profit opportunity ifthe following are the market prices of the assets The price of one share of stock is 39 The I rice of a call 0 tion on that stock which expires in one year and has an exercise price of 40 is 725 The price of a put option on that stock which expires in one year and has an exercise price of 40 is 650 The annual risk free rate is 6 Example In this case we should check whether the put ca parity holds Since we can see that this parity relation is violated we will show that there is an arbitrage profit opportunity CL 7254 0 44986 1rfT 10061 SP 39 650 455 The Construction of an Arbitrage Transaction Constructing the arbitrage strategy 1 Move all the terms to one side of the equation so their sum will be positive 2 For each asset use the sign as an indicator of the appropriate investment in the asset If the sign is negative then the cash flow at time t0 is negative which means that you buy the stock bond or option If the sign is positive reverse the position Example In this case we move all terms to the LHS Example In this case we should 1 Sell short one share of stock 2 Write one put option 3 Buy one call option 4 Buy a zero coupon riskfree

Spot and forward interest rate The yield curve Duration Bond Characteristics 9 A bond is a security issued to the lender buyer by the borrower seller for some amount of cash 9 The bond obligates the issuerto make speci ed payments of interest and principal to the lender on speci ed dates 9 The typical coupon bond obligates the issuer to make coupon payments which are determined by the coupon rate as a percentage ofthe par value face value When the bond matures the issuer repays the parvalue Q Zerocou on bonds are issued at discount sold for a price below par value make no coupon payments and pay the parvalue at the maturity date Bond Pricing Examples The par value of a riskfree zero coupon bond is 100 If the continuously compounded riskfree rate is 4 per annum and the bond matures in three months what is the price of the bond today 99005 A risky bond with par value of 1000 has an annual coupon rate of 8 with semiannual installments If the bond matures 10 yearfrom now and the riskadjusted cost of capital is 10 per annum com ounded semiannually what is the price of the bond today 8753779 Yield to Maturity Examples What is the yield to maturity annual compounded semiannually of the risky coupon bond if it is selling at 1200 5387 What is the expected yield to maturity of the risky couponbond if we are certain that the issuer is able to make all coupon payments but we are uncertain about his ability to pay the par value We believe that he will pay it all with probability 06 pay only 800 with probability 035 and won t be able to pay at all with probability 005 4529 Default Risk and Bond Rating 9 Although bonds generally promise a xed ow of 39 me in most cases this cas ow stream is uncertain since the issuer may default on his obligation 9 US government bonds are usually treated as 39ee of default credit risk Corporate and municipal bonds are considered risky Q Providers ofbond quality rating Q Standard and Poor s Corporation Duffamp Phelps QFitch lnvestorSerVice Default Risk and Bond Rating QAAA Aaa is the top rating Bonds rated BBB Baa and above are considered investmentgrade bonds Bonds rated lowerthan BBB are considered speculativegrade orjunk bonds Risky bonds offer a riskpremium The greater the default risk the higher the default risk premium The yield spread is the difference between the yield to maturity of high and lower grade bond Estimation of Default Risk The determinants ofthe bond default risk the probability of bankruptcy and debt quality ratings are based on measures of financial stability 3 Ratios of earnings to fixed costs 3 Pro tability measures Cash ow to debt ratios A complimentary measure is the transition matrix estimates the probability of a change in the rating of The TermStructu re of Interest Rates The short interest rate is the interest rate for a specific time interval say one year which does not have to start today The yield to maturity spot rate is the internal rate of return say annual of a zero coupon bond that prevails today and corresponds to the maturity of the bond Example In our previous calculations we ve assumed that all the short interest rates are equal Let us assume the following Example What is the price ofthe 1 2 3 and 4 years zerocoupon bonds paying 1000 at maturity Maturity ZeroCoupon Bond Price 10 1o111 1011 Date Short Forthe time interval Interest rate 0 r8

the short interest rates in each period H39VTT 1r11r21TT 1 VT 1r11r21FT T The yield curve is a graph of bond yieldto maturity as a function of timetomaturity The Yield Curve Example The TermStructu re of Interest Rates If we assume that all the short interest rates r t 1 2 T are equal then all the yields yT of zerocoupon bonds with different maturities T 1 2 are also equal and the yield curve is fla A flat yield curve is associated with an expected constant interest rates in the future An upward sloping yield curve is associated with an expected increase in the future interest rates A downward sloping yield curve is associated with an expected decrease in the future interest The Forward Interest Rate 0 The yield to maturity is the internal rate of return of a zero coupon bond that prevails today and corresponds to the maturity of the bond 0 The forward interest rate is the rate of return a borrower will pay the lender for a specific loan loan is equivalent to a forward zero coupon bond The Forward Interest Rate Suppose the price of 1year maturity zerocoupon bond with face value 1000 is 92593 and the price of the 2year zerocoupon bond with 1000 face value is 84168 If there is no opportunity to make arbitrage profits what is the 1year forward interest rate for the second year How will you construct a synthetic 1year forward zerocoupon bond loan of 1 000 that commences att 1 and matures att 2 The Forward Interest Rate If there is no opportunity to make arbitrage profits the 1year forward interest rate for the second year must be the solution of the following equation 1W22 1y11f2 where yT yield to maturity of a Tyear zerocoupon bond f 1year forward rate for yeart The Forward Interest Rate In our example y1 8 and y2 9 Thus 10092 10081f2 f2 01001

Bond prices and yields are inversely related 0 Prices of longterm bonds tend to be more sensitive to changes in the inter required rate of return cost of capital than of shortterm bonds compare two zero coupon bonds with different maturities 0 Prices of high couponrate bonds are less sensitive to changes in interest rates than prices of low couponrate bonds compare a zerocoupon bond and a couponpaying bond of the same maturity w E m Duration The observed bond price properties suggest that the timing and magnitude of all cash flows affect bond prices not only timetomaturity Macaulay s

value constant the bonds duration is lower when the coupon rate is higher Holding couponrate and par value constant the bonds duration generally increases with its time to maturity The Use of Duration Q It is a simple summary statistic of the effective average maturity of the bond or portfolio of fixed income instruments 0 Duration can be presented as a measure of bond portfolio price sensitivity
