1 Bond Valuation Capital Budgeting and Corporate Objectives Professor Ron Kaniel Simon School of Business University of Rochester 1 Bond Valuation An Overview Introduction to bonds and bond markets» What are they? Some examples Zero coupon bonds» Valuation» Interest rate sensitivity Coupon bonds» Valuation» Interest rate sensitivity The term structure of interest rates 2 1 1
2 What is a Bond? A bond is a security that obligates the issuer to make specified interest and principal payments to the holder on specified dates.» Coupon rate» Face value (or par)» Maturity (or term) Bonds are also called fixed income securities. Bonds differ in several respects:» Repayment type» Issuer» Maturity» Security» Priority in case of default 3 Repayment Schemes Pure Discount or ZeroCoupon Bonds» Pay no coupons prior to maturity.» Pay the bond s face value at maturity. Coupon Bonds» Pay a stated coupon at periodic intervals prior to maturity.» Pay the bond s face value at maturity. FloatingRate Bonds» Pay a variable coupon, reset periodically to a reference rate.» Pay the bond s face value at maturity. Perpetual Bonds (Consols)» No maturity date.» Pay a stated coupon at periodic intervals. Annuity or SelfAmortizing Bonds» Pay a regular fixed amount each payment period.» Principal repaid over time rather than at maturity
3 Types of Bonds: Issuers Bonds Issuer Government Bonds US Treasury, Government Agencies MortgageBacked Securities Government agencies (FNMA etc) Municipal Bonds State and local government Corporate Bonds Corporations AssetBack Securities Corporations 5 U.S. Government Bonds Treasury Bills» No coupons (zero coupon security)» Face value paid at maturity» Maturities up to one year Treasury Notes» Coupons paid semiannually» Face value paid at maturity» Maturities from 210 years 6 3 3
4 U.S. Government Bonds (Cont.) Treasury Bonds» Coupons paid semiannually» Face value paid at maturity» Maturities over 10 years» The 30year bond is called the long bond. Treasury Strips» Zerocoupon bond» Created by stripping the coupons and principal from Treasury bonds and notes. No default risk. Considered to be risk free. Exempt from state and local taxes. Sold regularly through a network of primary dealers. Traded regularly in the overthecounter market. 7 Agency and Municipal Bonds Agency bonds: mortgagebacked bonds» Bonds issued by U.S. Government agencies that are backed by a pool of home mortgages.» Selfamortizing bonds. (mostly monthly payments)» Maturities up to 30 years.» Prepayment risk. Municipal bonds» Maturities from one month to 40 years.» Usually exempt from federal, state, and local taxes.» Generally two types: Revenue bonds General Obligation bonds» Riskier than U.S. Government bonds
5 Corporate Bonds Bonds issued by corporations» Bonds vs. Debentures» Fixedrate versus floatingrate bonds.» Investmentgrade vs. Below investmentgrade bonds.» Additional features: call provisions convertible bonds puttable bonds 9 Seniority of Corporate Bonds In case of default, different classes of bonds have different claim priority on the assets of a corporation. Secured Bonds (AssetBacked)» Secured by real property.» Ownership of the property reverts to the bondholders upon default. Debentures» Same priority as general creditors.» Have priority over stockholders, but subordinate to secured debt
6 Bond Ratings Moody s S&P Quality of Issue Aaa AAA Highest quality. Very small risk of default. Aa AA High quality. Small risk of default. A A HighMedium quality. Strong attributes, but potentially vulnerable. Baa BBB Medium quality. Currently adequate, but potentially unreliable. Ba BB Some speculative element. Longrun prospects questionable. B B Able to pay currently, but at risk of default in the future. Caa CCC Poor quality. Clear danger of default. Ca CC High speculative quality. May be in default. C C Lowest rated. Poor prospects of repayment. D  In default

Table L.4, Credit Market Debt, All Sectors, by Instrument, Amount ($bil.), August, 2015 Debt Instrument 2015 Q1 Treasury securities 13,062 Agency backed securities 7,901 Municipal securities 3,694 Corporate and foreign bonds 11,702 Mortgages 13,463 Consumer Credit 3,321 Corporate equities 36,834 Mutual fund shares 12,
9 Bond Valuation: Zero Coupon Bonds B = Market price of the Bond of bond F = Face value R = Annual percentage rate m = compounding period (annual m = 1, semiannual m = 2, ) i = Effective periodic interest rate; i=r/m T = Maturity (in years) N = Number of compounding periods; N = T*m Two cash flows to purchaser of bond:» B at time 0» F at time T What is the price of a bond? Use present value formula: F B 1 i N 17 Valuing Zero Coupon Bonds: An Example Value a 5 year, U.S. Treasury strip with face value of $1,000. The APR is R=7.5% with annual compounding? What about quarterly compounding? What is the APR on a U.S. Treasury strip that pays $1,000 in exactly 7 years and is currently selling for $ under annual compounding? Semiannual compounding?
10 Interest Rate Sensitivity: Zero Coupon Bonds Consider the following 1, 2 and 10year zerocoupon bonds, all with» face value of F=$1,000» APR of R=10%, compounded annually. We obtain the following table for increases and decreases of the interest rate by 1%: Interest Rate Bond 1 Bond 2 Bond 3 1Year 2Year 10Year 9.0% $ $ $ % $ $ $ % $ $ $ Bond prices move up if interest rates drop, decrease if interest rates rise 19 Bond Prices and Interest Rates $1,200 $1,000 $800 $600 $400 $200 1Year 2Year 10Year $0 0.0% 5.0% 10.0% 15.0% 20.0% 25.0% Bond prices are inversely related to IR Longer term bonds are more sensitive to IR changes than short term bonds The lower the IR, the more sensitive the price
11 Measuring Interest Rate Sensitivity Zero Coupon Bonds We would like to measure the interest rate sensitivity of a bond or a portfolio of bonds.» How much do bond prices change if interest rates change by a small amount?» Why is this important? Use Dollar value of a one basis point decrease (DV01):» Basis point (bp): 1/100 of one percentage point =0.01%=0.0001» Calculate DV01: Method 1: Difference of moving one basis point down: DV01= B(R0.01%)B(R). Method 2: Difference of moving 1/2bp down minus 1/2pb up: DV01=B(R0.005%) B(R+0.005%). Method 3: Use calculus: B DV R 21 Computing DV01: An Example Reconsider the 1, 2 and 10 year bonds discussed before: Interest Rate Bond 1 Bond 2 Bond 3 1Year 2Year 10Year 9.990% $ $ $ % $ $ $ % $ $ $ % $ $ $ Method 1 $ $ $ Method 2 $ $ $ Method 3 $ $ $ Method 3: B R $1, T T *$0.10 * T 1 T
12 DV01: A Graphical Approach 10Year $1, $1, $ $ $ $ $0.00 Interest Rate DV01 estimates the change in the PriceInterest rate curve using a linear approximation. higher slope implies greater sensitivity 23 Valuing Coupon Bonds Example 1: Amortization Bonds Consider Amortization Bond» T=2» m=2» C=$2,000 c = C/m = $2,000/2 = $1,000» R=10% i = R/m = 10%/2 = 5% How can we value this security?» Brute force discounting» Similar to another security we already know how to value?» Replication
13 Valuing Coupon Bonds Example 1: Amortization Bonds Compare with a portfolio of zero coupon bonds: Buy Coupon Bond $3, $1, $1, $1, $1, Buy 6Month Zero $ Buy 1Year Zero $ Buy 1.5Year Zero $ Buy 2Year Zero $ Portfolio $3, A First Look at Arbitrage Reconsider amortization bond; suppose bond trades at $3,500 (as opposed to computed price of $3,545.95)» Can we make a profit without any risk? What is the strategy? What is the profit?
14 A First Look at Arbitrage Reconsider amortization bond; suppose bond trades at $3,500 (as opposed to computed price of $3,545.95)» Can make risk less profit Buy low: buy amortization bond Sell high: Sell portfolio of zero coupon bonds Time Period Buy Coupon Bond $3, $1, $1, $1, $1, Sell 6Month Zero $ $1, $0.00 $0.00 $0.00 Sell 1Year Zero $ $0.00 $1, $0.00 $0.00 Sell 1.5Year Zero $ $0.00 $0.00 $1, $0.00 Sell 2Year Zero $ $0.00 $0.00 $0.00 $1, Portfolio $3, $1, $1, $1, $1, Net Cash Flow $45.95 $0.00 $0.00 $0.00 $0.00 riskless profit of $45.95 no riskless profit if price is correct 27 Valuation of Coupon Bonds: Example 2: Straight Bonds What is the market price of a U.S. Treasury bond that has a coupon rate of 9%, a face value of $1,000 and matures exactly 10 years from today if the interest rate is 10% compounded semiannually? Months
15 Valuing Coupon Bonds The General Formula What is the market price of a bond that has an annual coupon C, face value F and matures exactly T years from today if the required rate of return is R, with mperiodic compounding?» Coupon payment is: c = C/m» Effective periodic interest rate is: i = R/m» number of periods N = Tm N c c c c c+f B Annuity Zero c i 1 1 F N 1 i 1 i N 29 The Concept of a Yield to Maturity So far we have valued bonds by using a given interest rate, then discounted all payments to the bond. Prices are usually given from trade prices» need to infer interest rate that has been used Definition: The yield to maturity is that interest rate that equates the present discounted value of all future payments to bondholders to the market price: Algebraic: B c yield 1 1 / m F 1 yield/ m N 1 yield/ m N
16 Yield to Maturity A Graphical Interpretation $2, $2, $1, $1, $ $0.00 0% 2% 4% 6% 8% 10% 12% 14% 16% 18% 20% 22% 24% Consider a U.S. Treasury bond that has a coupon rate of 10%, a face value of $1,000 and matures exactly 10 years from now.» Market price of $1,500, implies a yield of 3.91% (semiannual compounding); for B=$1,000 we obviously find R=10%. 31 Interest Rate Sensitivity: Coupon Bonds Coupon bonds can be represented as portfolios of zerocoupon bonds» Implication for price sensitivity Consider purchasing the US Treasury bond discussed earlier (10 year, 9% coupon, $1,000 face)» Suppose immediately thereafter interest rates fall to 8%, compounded semiannually.» Suppose immediately thereafter interest rate rises to 12% compounded semiannually.» Suppose the interest rate equals 9%, compounded semiannually. What are the pricing implications of these scenarios?
17 Implication of Interest Rate Changes on Coupon Bond Prices Recall the general formula: c B 1 i N 1 i 1 i What is the price of the bond if the APR is 8% compounded semiannually? 1 F N Similarly: If R=12%: B=$ If R= 9%: B=$1, Relationship Between Coupon Bond Prices and Interest Rates Bond prices are inversely related to interest rates (or yields). A bond sells at par only if its interest rate equals the coupon rate A bond sells at a premium if its coupon rate is above the interest rate. A bond sells at a discount if its coupon rate is below the interest rate
18 Interest Rate Sensitivity of Coupon Bonds Consider two bonds with 10% annual coupons with maturities of 5 years and 10 years. The APR is 8% What are the responses to a.01% (1bp) interest rate change? Yield 5Year Bond $ Change % Change 10Year Bond $ Change % Change 7.995% $1, $ % $1, $ % 8.000% $1, $1, % $1, $ % $1, $ % DV01 $ $ Does the sensitivity of a coupon bond always increase with the term to maturity? 35 Bond Prices and Interest Rates Price (P) $2, $2, $1, $1, Year Bond 10Year Bond $ $0.00 0% 2% 4% 6% 8% 10% 12% 14% 16% 18% 20% 22% 24% Interest Rate (R) Longer term bonds are more sensitive to changes in interest rates than shorter term bonds, in general
19 Bond Yields and Prices Consider the following two bonds:» Both have a maturity of 5 years» Both have yield of 8%» First has 6% coupon, other has 10% coupon, compounded annually. Then, what are the price sensitivities of these bonds, measured by DV01 as for zero coupon bonds? Yield 6%Bond $ Change % change 10%Bond $ Change % change 7.995% $ $ $1, $ % $ $1, % $ ($0.1891) $1, ($0.2101) % % DV01 $ $ Why do we get different answers for two bonds with the same yield and same maturity? 37 Maturity and Price Risk Zero coupon bonds have welldefined relationship between maturity and interest rate sensitivity: Coupon bonds can have different sensitivities for the same maturity» DV01 now depends on maturity and coupon Need concept of average maturity of coupon bond:» Duration
20 Duration Duration is a weighted average term to maturity where the weights are relative size of the contemporaneous cash flow. PV( c ) PV( c ) PV( c ) N PV( F) Duration T 1 T 2 T T 1 B 2 B N B N B Duration is a unitless number that quantifies the percentage change in a bond s price for a 1 percentage change in the interest rate. B B 1R Duration B R B R 1 R 39 Duration (cont.) The duration of a bond is less than its time to maturity (except for zero coupon bonds). The duration of the bond decreases the greater the coupon rate. This is because more weight (present value weight) is being given to the coupon payments. As market interest rate increases, the duration of the bond decreases. This is a direct result of discounting. Discounting at a higher rate means lower weight on payments in the far future. Hence, the weighting of the cash flows will be more heavily placed on the early cash flows  decreasing the duration. Modified Duration = Duration / (1+yield)
21 Spot Rates A spot rate is a rate agreed upon today, for a loan that is to be made today» r 1 =5% indicates that the current rate for a oneyear loan is 5%.» r 2 =6% indicates that the current rate for a twoyear loan is 6%.» Etc. The term structure of interest rates is the series of spot rates r 1,r 2,r 3,» We can build using STRIPS or coupon bond yields.» Explanations of the term structure. 41 Term Structure, February 25 th,

24 Summary Bonds can be valued by discounting their future cash flows Bond prices change inversely with yield Price response of bond to interest rates depends on term to maturity.» Works well for zerocoupon bond, but not for coupon bonds Measure interest rate sensitivity using DV01 and duration. The term structure implies terms for future borrowing:» Forward rates» Compare with expected future spot rates
