How do you cash in a zero coupon bond from 1984 with a maturity date of may 2009?
The bond has matured so if you're the owner of the bond you should have already received payment. If you haven't, contact the issuer to see if there's an error or the law firm that's handling that issuer's bankruptcy.

Five-Year Zero Coupon \n. \nIf the 2 5 years are exactly the same with the exception of having coupons (same lender, same claims, same everything) then yes you should be able to. The trick is finding the right yield curve and discounting everything back to the present value. The coupons can be tr…eated as mini zero-coupon bonds in their own right. (MORE)
Go to your local discount broker, (Schwab, Ameritrade, E*trade, Scottrade) open an account and they will cash it in or liquidate it for you. There will be a fee associated with the transaction. Shop around, prices vary. If they can't (or won't) do it, have them give you the name and address of the t…ransfer agent. You can send it to them to liquidate as well. Good luck. (MORE)
A bond that does not pay interest until the point in time when itreaches maturity.
Coupon bond= pay $A now. receive future periodic coupon and at maturity receive face value Discount bond= pay $B now. receive nothing until maturity where you receive face value. B is always less than A. That is, you pay less upfront investing in Discount Bond compared to Coupon Bond. But, you… don't receive periodic cash flow by investing in Discount Bond. So clearly which is better depends on how much money you have at present and your expectation of future interest rate (going up or down). If you expect interest rate/yield to go down in the future, then clearly you don't want to be sitting on a pile of money and earn meager interest on it. This is called re-investment risk. You risk having unfavorable interest rate to re-invest the cash flow (coupon) you'll get in future. In this case, locking in the current interest rate/yield by buying discount bond is preferable. The same logic apply if you expect interest rate/yield is going to rise, in which case buying a coupon bond is preferable since you can re-invest the cash flow (coupon) you'll get in future at a higher rate. You can't do so with Discount Bond coz you receive no payment and the interest/yield is locked. (MORE)
\n. \nA zero coupon bond pays no interest. Thus the market price for such a bond is always LESS than the maturity (face) value. The amount by which the bond is priced below its maturity value is known as the DISCOUNT. For example, a $100 zero coupon bond maturing in one year priced to yield 10% …(in simple terms) would be sold to the investor for $90.91 on the date of issue. The investor would receive no payments from the borrower until maturity, at which time the investor receives the $100 face value.\n. \n There's another form of zero-coupon bond \n. \nSome brokerages will take a regular bond with coupons and "strip" it. They'll remove the coupons and sell the corpus of the bond separately from the coupons. \n. \nA zero-coupon bond that was issued as such will normally have a really long maturity date--five to ten years isn't uncommon. You buy them as long-term investments...if you've got a child who will begin college when she's 19, you might want to buy ten-year zero-coupons that mature as the child enters each year of college.

What is the yield to maturity for a bond that has 10 years until maturity and a coupon rate of 8 sells for 1100?
YTM= 6.602%. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------. I got a different answer, I got YTM 6.67% . 80 - 10 (80 coupon -100 cap loss / 10 years) __________________ 1,110 + 1,000 / 2 (purchase price + 1,000 par /2) . therefore, 70 / 1,050 = 6….67% (rounded) . the formula for YTM is: Coupon Rate + Cap gain OR - Cap loss (subtract for a premium bond as seen here) ____________________________ (divided by...) Purchase Price + 1,000 par / 2 . you'll get a decimal answer which you can x by 100 to get the decimal in the right place, then round. example, 0.066666 x 100 = 6.66666 round to 6.67%. . It's not as complicated as it looks, just memorize the formula =). (MORE)
If a bond with face value of 1100 and a coupon rate of 8 is selling at a price of 970 is the bond's yield to maturity more or less than 8 and what is the current yield?
When a bond sells at a discount, the yield is higher than the coupon rate. Your income is 1,100 x 8% = 88. You invested 970. 88/970 = 9.07% yield.

The interest earned on your savings bonds is subject to federal income tax, which can be deferred until redemption, final maturity, or other taxable disposition, whichever occurs first. Savings bonds are subject to estate, inheritance, gift, or other excise taxes, whether federal or state.

Most bonds have two parts: the coupons and the corpus. The corpus represents the principal; the coupons the interest. Coupons have redemption dates printed on them; you turn in your coupon to receive the interest payment.

If two bonds have the same maturity the same yield to maturity and the same level of risk the bonds should they sell for the same price regardless of the bond's coupon rate?
if two bonds offer the same duration and yield, then an investor should look at their levels of convexity. if one bond has greater convexity, it is less affected by interest rate changes. also, bonds with higher convexity will have higher price than bonds with lower convexity regardless whether inte…rest rates rise or fall. Ergo, investors will have to pay more with greater convexity due to the bond's lesser sensitivity to interest rate changes. (MORE)
The zero coupon bond is more sensitive to change in rate (inflation) because the market value is not based on a fixed coupon.
A coupon bearing bond is a bond with a flat yield curve. This is a non interest bearing bond. There really would be no sense in purchasing a bond that does not gather any interest.

Back in the Late 1950s early 1960s as kids we would receive cash from stores with coupons. Coupons were only worth about 1-5 cents then but with 25 cents you could buy a lot, so coupons were a way to support your ice cream cone habit etc.
the main difference between deep discount bond and zero coupon bondis that in case of zero coupon bond no int is payable periodicallywhile in case of deep discount bond int is payable periodically atvery lower rate say 2% per annum

When a bond matures, it is at the end of the term and is ready to collect. You can either take the money or open another bond or CD with that money to lock the money away for the same amount of time so that it accrues more money in interest.
if a bond has finite maturity or limited maturity then we must consider not only the interest rate stream but also the maturity value (face value). regards Sajida Gul
The bond sells at a discount from its face value--sometimes a BIG discount. At the date of maturity, the bond will give you the full face value.
Depends on ur period date.. After 10 days of ur last period around 20th July or so :-)
The rate of return anticipated on a bond if held until the end ofits lifetime. YTM is considered a long-term bond yield expressed asan annual rate. The YTM calculation takes into account the bond'scurrent market price, par value, coupon interest rate and time tomaturity. It is also assumed that all …coupon payments arereinvested at the same rate as the bond's current yield. YTM is acomplex but accurate calculation of a bond's return that helpsinvestors compare bonds with different maturities and coupons. (MORE)
If you have a 10 percent coupon bond with 19 years left to maturity the bonds make annual payments and currently sells for 1102.05 what is the YTM?
A bond that pays 1 coupon(s) of 10% per year, that has a market value of $1,102.05, and that matures in 19 years will have a yield to maturity of 8.87%. What does it mean? Well, bond investors don't just buy only newly issued bonds (on the primary market) but can also buy previously issued bonds f…rom other investors (on the secondary market). Depending on whether a bond on the secondary market is bought at a discount or premium, the actual rate of return can be greater or lower than the quoted annual coupon rate. This is why bond investors need to look at YTM, which measures the bond's yield from the day the investor buys it to the day it expires, when the principal is paid to the bondholder. (MORE)
Yes. At maturity you get the final coupon payment in addition to the return of principal.
Yield usually refers to yield to maturity. If a bond is trading at par it usually means the yield to maturity is equal to the coupon.
To help finance a major expansion ABC Inc sold a noncallable bond several years ago that now has 15 years to maturity This bond has a 10.25 percent annual coupon paid semiannually. trading price?
You need to know the current yield of the bond to answer this question. The yield would be a function of the current risk free rate (likely a simlar maturity Treasury security if ABC issued in US dollars) and the current risk premium or credit spread for ABC.
If the Treasury yield curve is downward sloping how would the yield to maturity on a 10 year Treasury coupon bond compare to that on a 1 year Treasury bill?
The yield on a 10-year bond would be less than that on a 1-year bill
The coupon rate is the actually stated interest rate. This is the rate earned on a NEW issue bond. The yield to maturity takes into consideration the purchase price of a bond bought in the secondary market. For example, if you buy a $1,000 bond for $1100 which matures in 10 years and has a coupon of… 5%, your coupon is 5%, but your yield to maturity would be closer to 4% because you paid $1100, but will only get back $1,000 at maturity (losing $100). The "loss" reduces the return. (MORE)

Zero coupon bonds are sold at a price well below face value. Thus, these bonds are appealing to the small investor because they can be bought far more cheaply than ordinary debt obligations. The discount is usually from 50 to 75 percent.
They pay no 'coupon' which is the income paid periodically. You make a return by buying at a discount. As an example, if you buy a zero coupon bond for $86.26, maturing at $100 over 5 years, you would earn 3% p.a.
What one of these is not usually associated with bonds a coupon rate b maturity value c face amount d maturity rate?
Coupons, face amount, maturity value and maturity rate all areassociated with bonds. Coupons are a type of bond and the faceamount tells how much the coupon is worth until it matures, gaininginterest.
Zero coupon bonds do not pay interest and are therefore sold at a steep discount to face value depending on the maturity date of the bond. Due to the time value of money, the discount on a 30 year zero coupon bond will be much greater than on a 10 year zero coupon bond. At maturity bondholders wi…ll receive the full face value of the bond which provides bondholders a return. For example, a 30 year zero coupon bond with a face value of $1,000 and sold for $500 would return a $500 profit after 30 years. Holders of zero coupon bonds can sell the bonds at any time before maturity. If an investor bought zero coupon bonds prior to a steep drop in interest rates, the value of the zero coupon bonds would increase and could be sold at a profit. (MORE)
When the yield of a bond exceeds it coupon rate, the price will be below 'par' which is usually $100.
A zero coupon bond is a bond which pays no interim cashflow (i.e. coupons). We usually price on the basis of percentage of Face Value (i.e. $100). So if you expected 5% return, semi annually, over the 3 years remaining on the life of a ZC Bond, the price would be; 100/(1+Yield/frequency)^(TermXfr…equency) 100/(1+5%/2)^(3X2) = $86.23 So you'd pay $86.23 now and get $100 back in 3 years. If so, then your return would be 5% s.a. (MORE)
Zero coupon bonds issued by the US Treasury are issued at adiscount to face value. An investor holding zero coupon bonds ispaid the full face value when the zero coupon bond matures. The difference between the purchase price and the maturity value isknow as the original issue discount which represe…nts the interestearned on the zero coupon bond. Although a zero coupon bond does not pay annual interest, aninvestor must pay taxes each year based on the imputed receipt ofincome. Since the investor is not receiving interest paymentsduring the life of the bond, taxes would be paid on interest incomenot actually received until bond maturity. Due to the yearly taxliability on imputed interest, it makes sense for most investors tohold zero coupon bonds in a tax deferred retirement account. The interest earned on zero coupon bonds issued by the US Treasuryare exempt from state and local taxes. (MORE)
Zero Coupon Municipal Bonds are special because, unlike other bonds, they have no periodic interest payments. Rather, the investor receives one payment at maturity. This payment is equal to the amount invested, plus the interest earned, compounded semiannually.
The advantage of buying zero-coupon bonds is that when they reach maturity, the investor then receives the full face value of the bond. These bonds became popular in the 1980's even though they were first released in the 1960's.
A zero coupon is, in a financial sense, a security which does notpay interest periodically.
A zero-coupon note is a note which pays at maturity the value ofthe note with no separate interest payments.

Upon maturity the Series EE savings bond stops paying interestwhich brings up an interesting option for holders of maturedsavings bonds. Since the banks are paying close to zero on savingsthere is really no financial penalty for holding the Series EEbonds past the maturity date. In addition, federal… tax on theinterest earned on the savings bonds are not due until the bondsare actually cashed in which gives the holder the flexibility ofshifting income to a particular year. For someone nearingretirement and holding Series EE bonds which have matured it wouldprobably make sense to hold off on cashing in the bonds untilretirement when the bond holder would probably have lower incomeand thus a lower tax rate.
