Doing an online quiz and currently have 16/18 but this last question is worth 6 potentially throwing me down to 16/24 (66%) The question reads: Suppose that today you buy a 15 percent coupon bond making annual payments for \$1,342. The bond has 12 years to maturity. What rate of return do you expect to earn on your investment Answer = 9.98% 4 years from now, the YTM on your bond has declined by 1.60 percent, and you decide to sell. What price will your bond sell for Answer = \$1,374.68 part b), what is the holding period yield (HPY) on your investment Answer = 11.69% Worst part is, I know in a few months I'll look back at this and because they will be really east to me. Can someone just help for the time being though? I have the answers but I need to actually do the problem so I can learn it. Reps will be graciously given out for anyone who attempts :) Last edited by v-unit : 10-24-2010 at 11:45 PM.

I only have the payments, the coupon % and the years to maturity...I need 5 factors and I have 3. I figured I could use the coupon % and the payments to get the future value right? But I still don't know how to go after that. I'm using a TI BA II Plus calculator (Texas Instrument Business Analyst II Plus)
