# Can you compute the price of a 5-year zero coupon bond from 2 5 year coupon bonds?

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)

# What is a Zero coupon bond?

# What is usually a better investment- a coupon bond or discount bond?

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)

# What are zero-coupon debentures or bonds?

\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 =).

# How do bondholders get a return on zero coupon bonds?

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.

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)

Upon maturity the Series EE savings bond stops paying interestwhich brings up an interesting option for holders of maturedsavings bonds.
