send me solution of mgt411 assignment no 2 fall 2011


waisy had hai mr bukhari

agar dena hai tu do


ap tu khud ko KHUDA samajh bethy ho

 part a

 Present value of six month treasury bill = 100/(1+0.07)^1/2

                                                                 = 100/1.0344

                                                                 = Rs.96.67

part b

 Price of the consol =  8/(1+0.06)

                                = Rs.7.55 

part c

Price of the bond = coupon payment/(1+i)^n + face value/(1+i)^n

                            = 9/(1+0.08)^5 + 1000/(1+0.08)^5

                            = 9/1.4693 +1000/1.4693

                            = 6.1254 + 680.5962

                            = Rs.686.72

Part e

Current yield =  6 / 98

                      = 6.12%

part f

Holding period return = yearly coupon payment/ price paid + change in the price of bond/ price of the bond

                                    = 9/100 + 1050-1000/1000

                                    = 0.94% + 0.05

                                    = 0.94% + 5%

                                    = 5.94%
