Marks 20

Intrinsic value of the bond

Po=Σ Ct/ (1+r/2)n + Par/1+r/2)n

C = coupon payments = 100012/100 = 120/2 = Rs.60

No. of coupon payments = 52 = 10 (semi-annual) Required rate of return: 14/2 = 7% (semiannual)

= 60Annuity factor (7%,10) + 1,000 * PV factor (7%, 10) = 60{1-1/ (1+0.14/2) 52) / (0.14/2)} + 1,000/ (1+ (0.14/2)5*2 = 60{1-1/ (1+0.07)10 /0.07} + 1,000/ (1+0.07)10

= 421.41+ 508.35

= Rs. 929.76

Intrinsic value of the stock

Do = Current dividend = Rs.5 D1 = Rs.6

D2 = Rs.7

Value of Stock:

Po = D1/ (1+i)n + D2/ (1+i)n + P2/(1+i)n Po = 6/ (1.14)1+ 7/ (1.14)2 + 55/ (1.14)2 Po = 5.26+5.39+42.32

Po = Rs.52.97

Bond and Stock valuation Solution

Overvaluation or undervaluation of securities

For Bond

Bond is overvalued because market price is more than intrinsic value i.e. Market price > Intrinsic value

940 > 929.76

For Stock

Stick is also overvalued as its market price is more than its intrinsic value i.e. Market price > Intrinsic value

54 > 52.97
