After going through this assignment, the students should be able to:
• Understand the bonds duration
• Evaluate the bonds on the basis of their characteristics.
• How to choose best investments on the basis of bond characteristics?
Question:
It is widely acceptable that market interest rates and bond prices are inversely related to one another. As an investor
you want a portfolio with minimum interest rate sensitivity to minimize the capital losses caused by the increase in
rates. An analyst, expert in bonds has given you the suggestion to include bonds with shorter maturity and high
coupons. He also argued that a composite measure that considered both coupon and maturity like duration should be
used to evaluate a bond. He showed a brochure of a portfolio containing two bonds. The details of the bonds are given
below.
Coupon YTM Par Years to maturity Terms of payment Duration
Bond A 9% 12% 1000 3 Semiannually ?
Bond B 12% 15% 1000 5 Annually 3.510
He advised you to include bond A in your portfolio to get higher returns because it has shorter duration than bond B.
You are required to calculate the following for Bond A and suggest whether analyst is right or not.
a. Calculate the modified duration of the bond (restrict your calculation to 3 decimal points).
b. Assuming the bond’s YTM goes from 12 percent to 11.5 percent, calculate an estimate of the price change
