# Difference between coupon rate and yield to maturity?

# What is the difference between rate and yield?

Answer .
Rate is the specified interest rate paid on a financial instrument (such as a bond). The interest is calculated by applying the rate to the face value of the instr…ument..
The yield is calculated by dividing the interest amount received by the price paid for the investment, and the time held. So, if you bought a bond at a discounted price (below the face value), your yield would be higher than the rate. You buy a bond on Jan 1 with a face value of $1,000 and a stated rate of 5% (annual interest payment) at the discounted price of $950. On Dec 31, you receive $50 in interest (1,000 x 5%) which gives you a 5.26% yield (50/950)..
Or, if you bought a bond for face value close to the coupon date, your yield would be higher than the rate. On July 1, you pay the face value of $1,000 for a bond with a stated rate of 5% and which matures on 12/31. You receive $1,050 , a $50 yield for 6 mos., for a 10% annual yield.

# What is the yield to maturity for a bond that has 10 years until maturity and a coupon rate of 8 sells for 1100?

YTM= 6.602%.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------.
I got a different answer, I got YTM 6.67% .
80 - 10 (80 coupon -100 cap… loss / 10 years) __________________ 1,110 + 1,000 / 2 (purchase price + 1,000 par /2) .
therefore, 70 / 1,050 = 6.67% (rounded) .
the formula for YTM is: Coupon Rate + Cap gain OR - Cap loss (subtract for a premium bond as seen here) ____________________________ (divided by...) Purchase Price + 1,000 par / 2 .
you'll get a decimal answer which you can x by 100 to get the decimal in the right place, then round. example, 0.066666 x 100 = 6.66666 round to 6.67%. .
It's not as complicated as it looks, just memorize the formula =).

# If two bonds have the same maturity the same yield to maturity and the same level of risk the bonds should they sell for the same price regardless of the bond's coupon rate?

if two bonds offer the same duration and yield, then an investor should look at their levels of convexity. if one bond has greater convexity, it is less affected by interest r…ate changes. also, bonds with higher convexity will have higher price than bonds with lower convexity regardless whether interest rates rise or fall. Ergo, investors will have to pay more with greater convexity due to the bond's lesser sensitivity to interest rate changes.
