ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL ENGINEERING - EXAMPLE 34.6 : In a random walk, a stochastic process starts off with a score of A. This is a score for a chemical engineering test. At each discrete event, there is probability p chance you will increase your score by B and a (1 - p) chance you will decrease your score by C. The event happens T times. Let D = expected value of score. (a) Form an equation of D as a function of A, B, C, T and p. (b) Find the value of D if A = 60, B = 1, C = -1, T = 50, p = 0.5.

The purchase price is at 95 or 95 % of the par bond value. (a) What is the purchase price of the bond? (b) How much discount is enjoyed by the investor on average each year? (c) Find the income generated from coupon rate each year. (d) Find the overall interet rate or Yield to Maturity (YTM) by using the formula : YTM = [ Answer in (c) + Answer in (b) ] x 200 / [ par bond value + Answer in (a) ].
