___A 20-year original maturity bond with 1 year left to maturity has more interest rate price risk than a 10-year original maturity bond with 1 year left to maturity. (Assume that the bonds have equal default risk and equal coupon rates.)
__You have just noticed in the financial pages of the local newspaper that you can buy a bond (\$1000 par) for \$800. If the coupon rate is 10 percent with annual interest payments, and there are 10 year to maturity, should you make the purchase if your required return on investments of this type is 12 percent?
__A bond with a \$100 annual interest payment and \$1000 face value with five years to maturity (not expected to default) would sell for a premium if interest rates were below 9% and would sell for a discount if interest rates were greater than 11%.
__If a bond is callable, and if interest rates in the economy decline, then the company can sell a new issue of low-interest-rate bonds and use the proceeds to “call” the old bonds in and have effectively refinanced at a lower rate.
__If you buy a bond that is selling for less than its face, or maturity, value then the price (value) of the bond will increase the maturity date nears if market interest rates do not change during the life of the bond.
__If we have two bonds with a simple interest rate yield of 9% where one bond is compounded quarterly and the other bond is compounded monthly, the bond compounded quarterly will have a higher effective annual yield.

Stephanie just purchased a corporate bond that matures in three years. The bond has a coupon interest rate equal to 9 percent and its yield to maturity is 6 percent. If market conditions do not change – that is market interest rates remain constant – and Stephanie sells the bond in 12 months, what will be her capital gain from holding the bond?
a. Positive; because she bought the bond for a discount, which means its price has to increase as the maturity date nears.
b. Negative; because she bought the bond for a premium, which means its price has to decrease as the maturity date nears.
c. Zero, because she must have bought the bond for par, which means its price will not change as the maturity date nears.
d. This question cannot be answered, because the face (maturity) value of the bond is not given.
e. None of the above is correct.
