Illinois Industries has decided to borrow money by issuing perpetual bonds with a coupon rate of 10 percent, payable annually. The one-year interest rate is 10 percent. Next year, there is a 45 percent probability that interest rates will increase to 12 percent, and there is a 55 percent probability that they will fall to 6 percent. What will the market value of these bonds be if they are noncallable?

• Explain why if history records that stocks outperform bonds, why Life Insurance Companies invest so little in their general accounts. Why do you suppose Casualty Insurance companies invest even less? Do you suppose the newer insurance products such as Variable Life and Universal Life will lead to more or less stock investments for Life Insurance Companies?

## The Chestnut Street Company plans to issue a bond semiannually on March 31st and September 30th.

The Chestnut Street Company plans to issue a bond semiannually on March 31st and September 30th. The Controller has asked you to calculate information about the bond assuming two different market interest rates in the Excel Simulation below. The present value factor tables are included in the first four tabs of the Excel Simulation. Use the information included in the Excel Simulation and the Excel functions described below to complete the task.

• Cell Reference: Allows you to refer to data from another cell in the worksheet. From the Excel Simulation below, if in a blank cell, “=C6” was entered, the formula would output the result from cell C6, or 10 in this example.
• Multi-Tab Cell Reference: Allows you to refer to data from another cell in a separate tab in the worksheet. When using the multi-tab cell reference, type the equal sign first, then click on the other tab and then click on the cell you want to reference. The syntax of a multi-tab cell reference looks different than a normal cell reference, since it includes the tab name surrounded by apostrophes and also an exclamation point before the cell location. From the Excel Simulation below, if in a blank cell on the Sheet1 tab “=’Future Value of \$1′!C13” was entered, the formula would output the result from cell C13 in the Future Value of \$1 tab, or 1.10462 in this example.
• Basic Math functions: Allows you to use the basic math symbols to perform mathematical functions. You can use the following keys: + (plus sign to add), – (minus sign to subtract), * (asterisk sign to multiply), and / (forward slash to divide). From the Excel Simulation below, if in a blank cell “=C6+C8” was entered, the formula would add the values from those cells and output the result, or 12 in this example. If using the other math symbols the result would output an appropriate answer for its function.
• IF function: Allows you to test a condition and return a specific value is the result is true and different value if the result is false. The syntax of the IF function is “=IF(test_condition,value_if_true,value_if_false)” and specific considerations need to be made when using this function. The test_condition argument is an evaluation of the status of a cell, such as if the value of a cell is greater than, less than, or equal to another number or cell. The value_if_true and value_if_false arguments will return any specific result for each option, such as another cell reference, a value, or text. Throughout the entire equation, if text is being used in the test_condition, value_if_true, or value_if_false arguments then the text itself should be entered in quotations so that Excel will recognize the text as a “string of text” instead of another function. From the Excel Simulation below, if in a blank cell “=IF(C6>2,”Long-Term Bond”,”Short-Term Bond”) was entered, the formula would output the result of the value_if_true since the test_condition would be result as true, or in this case the text “Long-Term Bond”. Excel processes the IF function by separating it out into separate parts. First the test_condition – Excel thinks, find cell C6 and determine if the value is greater than 2. Once Excel determines if the result of that test_condition is TRUE or FALSE, it will return the value_if_true or value_if_false.
• VLOOKUP Function: Allows you find a value inside of a sorted data table by referencing the column and row labels. The syntax of the VLOOKUP function is “=VLOOKUP(lookup_value,table_array,col_index_num,range_lookup)” and results in a value found from a data table. The lookup_value argument is the value to be found in the first column of the table. The table_array is the cell reference for the data table, usually shown as a range. The col_index_num argument is the column number in the data table (table_array) where the matching value should be found. The range_lookup argument is a logical value of TRUE or FALSE, where TRUE represents the value found in the first column should be a closest match, and FALSE represents the value found in the first column should be an exact match. From the Excel Simulation below, if in a blank cell “=VLOOKUP(C6,’Future Value of \$1′!B3:T27,2,FALSE)” was entered, the formula would output the result of 1.10462 in this example. Excel processes the VLOOKUP function by using each argument to find the cross-section of the column and row reference in the data table. In the example, Excel looked at the first column of the table_array on the Future Value of \$1 tab cells B3:T27 and found the lookup_value of the Sheet1 cell C6 reference, or 10 periods in this example. That position in the first column is stored in Excel to know what row the final result will be found in. Remember that the first column used is the first column of the table_array and not the first column of the worksheet tab. Then the col_index_num is used by Excel to determine what column of the table_array the final result is included, or in this case the second column. Excel then finds the cross-section of those two values using the row and column references and outputs the final result from the data table.

## COMMENT MARIA

I NEED A POSITIVE COMMENT BASEDIN THIS ARGUMENT..BETWEEN 150-200 WORDS

Per Course-notes.org the sampling theory is defined as a field of statistics that is involved with the collection, analysis and interpretation of data collected from random samples of a population. In other words, if we want to study all people with schizophrenia in Arizona, how would we do it? It is nearly impossible to study all of them- or the entire population that have schizophrenia, therefore, only a small part of the population is going to be studied, this is a sample.

Generality can be defined as the research findings and conclusions from a study conducted on a sample population applied to the population at large. In other words, generalizability depends on the degree to which the sample result can represent of the population. As an example, the researcher studies a sample of people with schizophrenia from Arizona than applies the results to a larger population with schizophrenia. Or a nurse studies a sample of population who had a fall in Progressive Care Unit in the last 5 years and applies the results to the entire population admitted to PCU.

Some requirements of generality are the need to have a study sample that represents some population of interest in our case people with schizophrenia, to understand the contexts in which the studies are done and how these studies influence the results. However, it does not matter how carefully researchers are during the research, there is no absolute guarantee that the results obtained in a study will occur in every situation outside the study.

A bond with a coupon paying \$65 per year has a conversion exercise price of \$45 and par value of \$1000. Current yields on similar investments are returning 7.85%. There are tens years to maturity, and the price of the underlying stock is priced at \$43 in the market. What is the current price of the bond? What is the conversion value of the bond? and what is the difference between the two, and if any exists, what will occur? use 22 shares conversion ratio to figure it out.
