Media Bias Inc issued bonds 10 years ago at 1 000
Media Bias Inc. issued bonds 10 years ago at $1,000 per bond. These bonds had a 40-year life when issued and the annual interest payment was then 12 percent. This return was in line with the required returns by bondholders at that point in time as described next:
Real rate of return ......... 2%
Inflation premium ......... 5
Risk premium .......... 5
Total return ........... 12%
Assume that 10 years later, due to good publicity, the risk premium is now 2 percent and is appropriately reflected in the required return (or yield to maturity) of the bonds. The bonds have 30 years remaining until maturity. Compute the new price of the bond.
