# Is the coupon rate or yield rate paid on a bond?

# If treasury bonds yield 6 percent and Carter's marginal income tax rate is 40 percent what yield on the Chicago municipal bonds would make Carter's treasurer indifferent between the two?

Answer .
\nmuni yield must equal 10% to be equal to the tax shield 6 percent of the treasury yield. 100(muni yield) = 100(t-yield)/(1-(marginal tax))\n.
\n100x = 100x .06/(1-.40)\n.
\n100x = 100x .06/0.6 divide both side by 100\n.
\nx = .06/0.6\n.
\nx= 0.10\n.
\nmuni rate equals 10%

# What is the difference between rate and yield?

Answer .
Rate is the specified interest rate paid on a financial instrument (such as a bond). The interest is calculated by applying the rate to the face value of the instrument..
The yield is calculated by dividing the interest amount received by the price paid for the investment, and the time held. So, if you bought a bond at a discounted price (below the face value), your yield would be higher than the rate. You buy a bond on Jan 1 with a face value of $1,000 and a stated rate of 5% (annual interest payment) at the discounted price of $950. On Dec 31, you receive $50 in interest (1,000 x 5%) which gives you a 5.26% yield (50/950)..
Or, if you bought a bond for face value close to the coupon date, your yield would be higher than the rate. On July 1, you pay the face value of $1,000 for a bond with a stated rate of 5% and which matures on 12/31. You receive $1,050 , a $50 yield for 6 mos., for a 10% annual yield.

# A 5-year corporate bond yields 8 percent a 5-year municipal bond of equal risk yields 6 percent the state tax rate is 0 at what federal tax rate are you indifferent between bonds?

To find the federal tax rate at which the buyer would be indifferent between Muni bonds(which are tax free) and Corporate bonds(which fall under your tax bracket tax rate) you follow this simple formula:.
Corporate Bond Yield=(Municipal bond Yield)/(1- Federal tax rate).
In this case you would solve for the Federal Tax Rate and get an answer of .25 or 25%.

# What is coupon rate?

Coupon rate is simply just the annual coupon payments paid by the issuer relative to the bond's face or par value. Coupon rate can be calculated by dividing the sum of the security's annual coupon payments and dividing them by the bond's par value. For example, a bond which was issued with a face value of $1000 that pays a $25 coupon semi-annually would have a coupon rate of 5%. Source: investopedia

# 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 =).

# 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?

# Do bonds with larger coupons have greate interest rate risk tan do bonds with smaller coupons?

No - the lower the coupon the higher the interest rate risk. The low coupon indicates it will take longer for bondholder to have capital returned, so money is at risk longer. Higher coupon suggests faster return of capital and thus a reduction of risk. Investopedia has some nice material on bond duration.

# What is the relationship between coupon rate on a bond and security provisions?

Coupon Rate: The actual interest rate on the bond, usually payable in semiannual installments. The coupon rate normally stays constant during the life of the bond and indicates what the bondholder's annual dollar incomes will be. Bond Security Provisions: .
Secured Debt: Specific assets are pledged to bondholders in the event of default (inability to pay the debt). .
Mortgage Agreement: Real property is pledged as a security (collateral) for the loan. .
After-acquired property clause: Requires any new property to be placed under the original mortgage. Specific security provisions can determine the coupon rate. Due to the specific asset claims in a secured bond most companies will opt for the unsecured debt as it will give the bondholder a claim against the corporation as oppose to a lien against an asset.

# What is relationship between a bond coupon rate and its duration?

bond coupon rates and yield rates have very similar effects and a very similar relationship to duration, lemme explain, by first explain durations effects in relation to interest rates, then yields and finally you can surmise that relationship between yield rates will be the same as coupon rates .
Duration can be seen as the elasticity of the bond's price with respect to interest rates. When duration is 7, a 15 year bond will fall 7% in value if interest rates increase by 1%. In the data we've generated we can also determine the relationship between yields and duration by analyzing the change after a 50 basis point decrease in rates. The duration will rise as yields are lowered, and conversely a high coupon rate or high yield will result in lower durations. While a higher yield reduces the present value of all the bond's payments, it reduces the value of payments further in the future by a greater proportional amount. This amounts to a reduction in duration. Merck & Company's bond has the highest yield and therefore one would surmise that the duration for MRK should be lower than the other bonds, this is only true if all other variables are held equal (ceteris paribus). This is not the case. The bonds have wildly different coupons remaining. Eli Lilly's bond has a similar number of coupons remaining-suggesting a relatively good candidate for comparison-and a lower yield than MRK, leading one to expect LLY bond to have a higher duration than MRK. An astute financial student would discourage this comparison, citing that LLY exhibits the highest (7.125%) annual coupon rate, which would in turn reduce the duration. While comparisons between bonds will fail us due to their unique characteristics, it is easy to see the change when examining a single bond and the effect of a 50 basis point decrease in rates has on the bond's duration. Every single bond's duration rose, relative to itself before the basis change, as their yields were lowered. This helps prove our assumption of the inverse relationship between yield and duration.

[edit] Preferred share dividend yield .
Dividend payments on preferred shares are stipulated by the prospectus. The company will typically refer to a preferred share by its initial name which is the yield on its original price --- for example, a 6% preferred share. However, the price of preferred shares varies according to the market so the yield based on the current price fluctuates. Owners of preferred shares calculate multiple yields to reflect the different possible outcomes over the life of the security..
current yield is the $Dividend / Pfd share current price. .
Since the share may be purchased at a lower (higher) cost than its final redemption value, holding it to maturity will result in a capital gain (loss). The annualized rate of gain is calculated using the Present value of a dollar calculation. ('PV' is the current stock price. 'FV' is the redemption value. 'n' is the number of years to redemption. Solve for the interest rate 'r'.) The yield to maturity is the sum of this annualized gain (loss) and the current yield. .
There are other possible yields discussed at Yield to maturity. .
[edit] Common share dividend yield .
Unlike preferred stock, there is no stipulated dividend for common stock. Instead, dividends paid to holders of common stock are set by management, usually in relation to the company's earnings. There is no guarantee that future dividends will match past dividends or even be paid at all. Due to the difficulty in accurately forecasting future dividends, the most commonly-cited figure for dividend yield is the current yield which is calculated using the following formula:.
For example, take a company which paid dividends totaling $1 last year and whose shares currently sell for $20. Its dividend yield would be calculated as follows:.
Rather than use last year's dividend, some try to estimate what the next year's dividend will be and use this as the basis of a future dividend yield. Such a scheme is used for the calculation of the FTSE UK Dividend+ Index [1]. It should be noted that estimates of future dividend yields are by definition uncertain..

# Why do the coupon rates for various bonds vary so much?

# 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 interest 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.

# What is the relationship between coupon rate and bond price?

The Bond price is the amount of the bond when it becomes mature. The coupon rate is the amount of interest payable on the bond. Bonds have three major components The first is the face value (also called par value). This is the value of the bond as given on the certificate or instrument. This is the value the bond holder will receive at maturity unless the issuer defaults. If bonds are retired before maturity, bond holders may receive a slight premium over face value. Investors pay par when they buy the bond at its original face value. The price investors pay may be more or less than the face value. Bonds also have a coupon rate. This is the annual rate of interest payable on the bond. For the owner of a bond, the higher the coupon rate, the higher the interest payments the owner receives. The rate is set at the time the bond is issued and generally does not change. Most bonds make interest payments semiannually, although some bonds are offered with monthly and quarterly payments. Did you know? Until 1983, all bond owners received an actual paper bond certificate. This inspired bond terminology. The loan amount appeared prominently on the face of the bond. Bonds included coupons that the owner detached, one Price and interest rate on a bond are inversely related, if the bond price is low, rate will be high, if the bond price is high, interest rate will be lower.
