What would be the advantage of Wallmart issuing "callable bonds"? What would that do to the price?
my initials post:
Last Traded Price $121.69
Last Trade Yield 3.637%
Last Trade Date 10/27/2016
Par Value 1,000
Coupon Payment $25.00 = 1000*(5%/2)
Interest Rate 1.819% = 3.637%/2
Nper 48 = (2040-2016) *2
Price of Bond $1,216.97 = PV (B3, B4-B2, B1)
With the current price of the bond at $1,216.96 it is considered a premium bond. This is because it is selling for more than the par value of the bond. Credit rating as well as interest rates certainly provides a good push regarding the power of the bond. The economy and inflation will also have an impact on the cost of a bond.
