Factors Affecting Bond Price
Learning outcome: After attempting this activity, students will be able to understand different features of the bond and their role in bond price fluctuation.
Background: Bonds are the financial instruments which are featured as loan and a way to raise capital whenever needed by organizations. Par value, coupon rate, yield to maturity and time to maturity are some of the important features which are associated with a bond. These features have some interesting relations that strongly affect bond prices in the market. According to studies, following relation between market Yield to Maturity (YTM) and coupon rate has been observed which decides either a bond will be issued on premium or at discount:
Similarly, bonds with different time to maturities and varying coupon rates respond differently to interest rate changes in the market. In this context, two cases have been given below:
Case 1: Alpha company has issued two bonds with par value of Rs. 100,000 each and both have 20 years of maturity. Moreover, Coupon rate of bond issue-1 is 8% semiannually while the coupon rate of bond issue-2 is 9% semiannually.
Case 2: Beta company has issued two bonds with par value of Rs. 100,000 each and at annual coupon rate of 10%. Further, bond issue-1 has 15 years of maturity and bond issue-2 has maturity period of 20 years.
Required: Analyze which bond will show more price fluctuation to interest rate changes in each of the above given cases and why?
(Note: Any numeric working is not required. Support your answer with solid reasoning. Your answer must be to the point in context of above given scenario so, irrelevant discussion should be avoided).
