4. An investor must choose between two bonds: Bond A pays $72 annual interest and has a market value of $925. It has 10 years to maturity. Bond B pays $62 annual interest and has a market value of $910. It has two years to maturity. Assume the par value of the bonds is $1,000.
a. Compute the current yield on both bonds.
b. Which bond should she select based on your answer to part a?
c. A drawback of current yield is that it does not consider the total life of the bond. For example, the yield to maturity on Bond A is 8.33 percent. What is the yield to maturity on Bond B?

Though the bonds were initially issued at 10 percent, the interest rates on similar issues have declined to 8.5 percent. The bonds were originally issued for 20 years and have 10 years remaining. The new issue would be for 10 years. There is a 9 percent call premium on the old issue. The underwriting cost on the new $18,000,000 issue is $530,000, and the underwriting cost on the old issue was $380,000. The company is in a 35 percent tax bracket, and it will use an 8 percent discount rate (rounded aftertax cost of debt) to analyze the refunding decision.
a. Calculate the present value of total outflows.
b. Calculate the present value of total inflows.

d. Should the old issue be refunded with new debt?
