of the stream of cash flows it is expected to generate. Hence, the value of a bond is obtained by discounting the bond's expected cash flows to the present using the appropriate discount rate . Determining this rate in practice - i.e. "pricing" the bond - is done with reference to other instruments. Once the price or value has been calculated, the sensitivity of the price can then be estimated; the various yields, which relate the price of the bond to its coupons, can also be determined. When the bond includes embedded options , the valuation is more specialized and combines option pricing with the cash flow based ...

measuring investment returns
Realized return is what the term implies; it is ex post (after the fact) return, or return that was or could have been earned. Realized return has occurred and can be measured with the proper data.

Is the car salesman lying to you about your car loan's interest rate? (I never knew a car salesman to lie unless it was absolutely convenient...) They usually tell you what the monthly payment is. Are you getting the advertised interest rate? Example: The monthly payment on a five year (60 month), $10,000 car loan is $222.45. The algorithm solves for interest rate i in the expression $222.45*P/A(i,N=60) - $10,000 = 0. That is, $222.45 times the capital recovery factor must equal the loan's present value. The result is 1.00%, but this is the monthly rate. The annual compounded rate is 1.01 to the 12th power, minus one, = industry trends, business articles and survey research
The Bond Dilemma
With interest rates poised to rise later this year, I’m getting a lot of emails and comments from readers who are wary about investing in bonds. There seem to be a lot of myths and misunderstandings about bonds, which isn’t surprising: fixed-income investments can be difficult to get your head around. Let’s start with the most relevant issue: when interest rates rise, the value of bonds goes down. To understand why, imagine buying a five-year bond with a face value of $1,000 that pays 5% interest annually. Now imagine that 12 months later interest rates have risen one percentage point. Your bond now has four years left to ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

With a fall in the index, or deflation, the principal decreases. TIPS pay interest every six months. The interest rate is a fixed rate determined at auction. Though the rate is fixed, interest payments vary because the rate is applied to the adjusted principal. Specifically, the amount of each interest payment is determined by multiplying the adjusted principal by one-half the interest rate. Treasury provides TIPS Inflation Index Ratios to ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
