1 Finance 333 Investments Practice Questions for Midterm II Winter 2004 Professor Yan 1. The market portfolio has a beta of a. 0. *b. 1. c. 1. d By definition, the beta of the market portfolio is The riskfree rate and the expected market rate of return are 0.06 and 0.12, respectively. According to the capital asset pricing model (CAPM), the expected rate of return on security X with a beta of 1.2 is equal to a b c *d e E(R) = 6% + 1.2(126) = 13.2%. 3. According to the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM), fairly priced securities a. have positive betas. *b. have zero alphas. c. have negative betas. d. have positive alphas.. A zero alpha results when the security is in equilibrium (fairly priced for the level of risk). 4. According to the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM), a. a security with a positive alpha is considered overpriced. b. a security with a zero alpha is considered to be a good buy. c. a security with a negative alpha is considered to be a good buy. *d. a security with a positive alpha is consider to be underpriced.. A security with a positive alpha is one that is expected to yield an abnormal rate of return, based on the perceived risk of the security, and thus is underpriced. 5. Security X has an expected rate of return of 0.11 and a beta of 1.5. The riskfree rate is 0.05 and the market expected rate of return is According to the Capital Asset Pricing Model, this security is a. underpriced. b. overpriced. *c. fairly priced.
2 d. cannot be determined from data provided.. 11% = 5% + 1.5(9%  5%) = 11.0%; therefore, the security is fairly priced. 6. What is the expected return of a zerobeta security? a. The market rate of return. b. Zero rate of return. c. A negative rate of return. *d. The riskfree rate. e. None of the above. E(R S ) = r f + 0(R M  r f ) = r f. 7. A coupon bond that pays interest annually has a par value of $1,000, matures in 5 years, and has a yield to maturity of 10%. The intrinsic value of the bond today will be if the coupon rate is 7%. a. $ b. $ c. $1, *d. $ e. $1, FV = 1000, PMT = 70, n = 5, i = 10, PV = A coupon bond that pays interest semiannually has a par value of $1,000, matures in 5 years, and has a yield to maturity of 10%. The intrinsic value of the bond today will be if the coupon rate is 8%. *a. $ b. $ c. $1, d. $1, FV = 1000, PMT = 40, n = 10, i = 5, PV = A coupon bond that pays interest of $100 annually has a par value of $1,000, matures in 5 years, and is selling today at a $72 discount from par value. The yield to maturity on this bond is. a. 6.00% b. 8.33% *c % d % FV = 1000, PMT = 100, n = 5, PV = 928, i = % 10. You purchased an annual interest coupon bond one year ago that had 6 years remaining to maturity at that time. The coupon interest rate was 10% and the par value was $1,000. At the time you purchased the bond, the yield to maturity was 8%. If you sold the bond after receiving the first
3 interest payment and the yield to maturity continued to be 8%, your annual total rate of return on holding the bond for that year would have been. a. 7.00% b. 7.82% *c. 8.00% d % FV = 1000, PMT = 100, n = 6, i = 8, PV = FV = 1000, PMT = 100, n = 5, i = 8, PV = HPR = ( ) / = 8% 11. A coupon bond pays annual interest, has a par value of $1,000, matures in 4 years, has a coupon rate of 10%, and has a yield to maturity of 12%. The current yield on this bond is. a. 9.39% b % *c % d % FV = 1000, n = 4, PMT = 100, i = 12, PV= $100 / $ = 10.65%. 12. A zerocoupon bond has a yield to maturity of 9% and a par value of $1,000. If the bond matures in 8 years, the bond should sell for a price of today. a *b. $ c. $ d. $ $1,000/(1.09) 8 = $ The yield to maturity on a bond is. a. below the coupon rate when the bond sells at a discount, and equal to the coupon rate when the bond sells at a premium. *b. the discount rate that will set the present value of the payments equal to the bond price. c. based on the assumption that any payments received are reinvested at the coupon rate. d. none of the above. e. a, b, and c. The reverse of a is true; for c to be true payments must be reinvested at the yield to maturity. 14. A bond will sell at a discount when. a. the coupon rate is greater than the current yield and the current yield is greater than yield to maturity b. the coupon rate is greater than yield to maturity c. the coupon rate is less than the current yield and the current yield is greater than the yield to maturity
4 *d. the coupon rate is less than the current yield and the current yield is less than yield to maturity are true. In order for the investor to earn more than the current yield the bond must be selling for a discount. Yield to maturity will be greater than current yield as investor will have purchased the bond at discount and will be receiving the coupon payments over the life of the bond. 15. Consider a 5year bond with a 10% coupon that has a present yield to maturity of 8%. If interest rates remain constant, one year from now the price of this bond will be. a. higher *b. lower c. the same d. cannot be determined e. $1,000 This bond is a premium bond as interest rates have declined since the bond was issued. If interest rates remain constant, the price of a premium bond declines as the bond approaches maturity. 16. A 1% decline in yield will have the greatest effect on the price of the bond with a a. 10year maturity, selling at 80 b. 10year maturity, selling at 100 *c. 20year maturity, selling at 80 d. 20year maturity, selling at 100 e. all bonds will be affected equally The longer the maturity the more an interest rate changes the price of the bond. Bonds selling at discount are affected more than bonds selling at par. 17. Using semiannual compounding, a 15year zero coupon bond that has a par value of $1,000 and a required return of 8% would be priced at. *a. 308 b. $315 c. $464 d. $555 FV = 1000, n = 30, I = 4, PV = The yield curve shows at any point in time: a. The relationship between the yield on a bond and the duration of the bond. b. the relationship between the coupon rate on a bond and time to maturity of the bond. *c. The relationship between yield on a bond and the time to maturity on the bond. d. All of the above. e. None of the above. Use the following information to answer questions 19 through 21. Suppose that all investors expect that interest rates for the 4 years will be as follows:

(Par value = $1,000) a. $1, b. $1, c. $1, *d. $1, [(1.05)(1.07)] 1/21 = 6%. FV = 1000, n = 2, PMT = 100, i = 6, PV = $1, What is the yield to maturity of a 3year zero coupon bond? a. 7.00% b. 9.00% *c. 6.99% d. 7.49% [(1.05)(1.07)(1.09)] 1/31 = Use the following information to answer question 22. Given the following pattern of forward rates: Year Forward Rate 1 5% 2 6% 3 6.5% 22.

6 $1,000 / (1.06)(1.065) = $ (selling price) $1,000 / (1.05)(1.06)(1.065) = $ (purchase price) ($ $843.64) / $ = 5% 23.

The duration of a zero coupon bond is equal to the maturity of the bond. 24. Which of the following two bonds is more price sensitive to changes in interest rates? 1.

Bond X because of the longer time to maturity. *c. Bond Y because of the longer duration. d. Both have the same sensitivity because both have the same yield to maturity. e. None of the above Duration is the best measure of bond price sensitivity; the longer the duration the higher the price sensitivity. 25. Which of the following is not true? a.
