It is very refreshing to see someone who has real command over details. <br /><br />I guess it shouldn't be difficult but I am confused nonetheless while trying to calculate bond YTM for 11% monthly coupon NCD. Here are my questions:<br /><br />1) Finance calculator TI BAII that I am using does not have the option to compute 12 payment period in a year. Excel "Yield" function doesn't take more than 4 periods and Excel "Rate", "IRR" and "YIELDMAT" function gives an error #NUM<br /><br />I will be very interested to know how you came up with a YTM of 8.52% Per Annum for Tata Cap NCD Option 1 with a price of 110.5% for the remaining maturity period of 4.5 years. This is with reference to price quote on September 7, 2009.<br /><br />2) I am also trying to figure out how do they get to 11.57% Yield to Redemption in the prospectus for Option I. I am assuming Yield To Redemption is the same as Yield To Maturity and that all the tranches were issued at Par and the the Put and Call optionality are not considered. This question is related to the previous question in the sense that I can compute it once I know the answer to the previous question.<br /> <br />3) I thought bond prices are quoted on clean basis i.e. without accrued interest rate. Therefore, 110.5% of par would be the clean price on September 7, 2009.<br /><br />I will really appreciate if you can help clear my doubts. I probably am missing something very simple but for now, I don't get it.<br /><br />Thanks for your help.<br /><br />--<br />HariHarinoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8483021005927155630.post-75159459048623504592010-02-23T06:56:00.288+05:302010-02-23T06:56:00.288+05:30fmps,debentures(ncds) and bonds are listed on ns...fmps,debentures(ncds) and bonds are listed on nse/bse-however my broker icicidirect.com does not allow trading in these catagory(except tata ncd-we cannot buy shriram transport ncd or larsen and turbo ncd despite they r listed on nse/bse,active trading takes place in that counter) -pl lemme know which broker has trading platforms for samekashmiranoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8483021005927155630.post-88916288897236210892010-02-02T09:27:36.670+05:302010-02-02T09:27:36.670+05:30Santanu: You’re intelligent enough to go through a...Santanu: You’re intelligent enough to go through a prospectus but at the same time silly enough to pose such questions.<br /><br />Again, my advice is to discuss it with your friends.

No problem – let me explain. <br /><br />An interest rate of 9.62% payable / compounded half-yearly is equivalent to an interest rate of 9.85% payable annually.<br /><br />Let’s make it a bit easier. Suppose your total investment is Rs 1 lakh. Now after six months you’ll receive Rs 4,810 (@ interest rate of 9.62%). Now if you reinvest this Rs 4,810 for further six month at the same rate of interest, then at the end of year you’ll receive Rs 4,810 plus Rs 231 (interest on Rs 4,810). So your total interest income for the year becomes Rs 9,851.<br /><br />I hope it is now clear.Fisherhttp://www.themoneyquest.comnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8483021005927155630.post-54465210993276476872010-01-28T12:51:40.490+05:302010-01-28T12:51:40.490+05:30Hi Fisher,

I’m answering your last three questions:<br /><br />3.Put option of 36 months means that on expiry of 36 months, you’ve right to sell the NCDs back to the company at the initial issue price of the NCD irrespective of market price of NCD. And, if you exercise it, company is bound to buy-back / redeem it.<br /><br />For exercising it, you’ll need to inform the company within 30 days of the expiry of 36 months from the deemed date of allotment.<br /><br />4. Yes, you can show the interest on NCD (Cumulative option) on accrual basis provided you’re treating your other interest income (such as interest on FDs) in a similar manner for tax purpose.<br /><br />5.

Don’t wor...Prabhu, I can understand your confusion. Don’t worry, I’ll clarify.<br /><br />First, let me answer your questions one by one:<br /><br />1. Right<br /><br />2. Correct<br /><br />3. Yes, if you buy Tata Capital NCD option-3 even one week before the record date / book closure date (and not declaration date), you’re entitled for the full year interest. Debt securities are quoted cum-interest i.e., the interest accrued till the date of buy / sell is already reflected in the price.<br /><br />4. The correct figure is 9.89%.<br /><br />5. The safety / risk of the instrument remain the same irrespective of the amount of investment made. In case of NCDs there is default risk, reinvestment risk, interest rate risk, call risk etc. <br /><br />So, you’ll have to do risk management / mitigation on your own by spreading out your investments across different asset classes (e.g., equity, debt, gold, property etc) and further diversify among various instruments under a single asset class in accordance with your goals, risk taking ability and time horizon.<br /><br /><br />What you’ve written is more or less correct. I don’t dispute it. But what you’re considering is ‘Current Yield’ which is not a correct way to measure returns from NCDs / Bonds. Why? Because, it shows only half the picture.<br /><br />Let me explain it. If we assume that you’re going to get back your entire original investment (i.e., the principal amount) at the time of redemption, your calculations are perfectly correct. However, it is not so. For example, if you buy Tata Capital NCD option 2 from the market at a price of Rs 1140, you’re going to get back only Rs 1000 at the time of redemption by the company after 4.5 years. In other words, you’ll incur a capital loss of Rs 140 at the time of redemption which is not reflected by the current yield.<br /><br />Now, you can go back to my previous reply.Fisherhttp://www.themoneyquest.comnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8483021005927155630.post-42706237422943685502009-09-11T21:38:57.206+05:302009-09-11T21:38:57.206+05:301)I had asked if N1 option, monthly income option,...1)I had asked if N1 option, monthly income option,monthly income is for 4.5 years as 6 months have elapsed, is that correct. Also based on todays NAV 0f 111000 and monthly interest of 916 on face value of 100000 at 11%, Interest we get is 9.9% and not 8.52% as mentioned by you if my calculations are right<br /><br />2) Option 2, N2 Quarterly interest is 28.13 at 11.25%, so Interst we get if we buy at 1140 is 9.9% again. But my Query was as 6 months have passed i.e 2 Quarters are over from date of allotment we get interest for only the rest 2 Quarters of the year. Am i correct?<br /><br />3) Option 3, N3 Annual interest is 120 on face value of 1000 at 12%, So Interest works out to 10.41% at present purchase cost of 1153, My Query was as 6 months have passed will i still get interest for complete year? Is interest given to the person who holds these bonds in the Book of records on the date of declaration? If thats the case suppose i buy the NCD just a week before the Annual interest is declared, still i get the interest of full year,But the Interest is already reflected in price i buy?<br /><br />4) Option 4, N4 Cumulative yields 1762.3 at 12% Compounded annually on face value of 1000, so net interest we receive is 9.83% compounded yearly on present cost of purchase of 1153 for a period of another 4.5 years, at 9.83% after 4.5 yeas we get 1762.3 if held on till maturity.<br /><br />5) How safe it is to invest bigger amounts in these NCD?<br /><br />Hope you answer all my Queries in detail one by one.<br />You could also email me the reply at sudheerdr2000@yahoo.comPrabhunoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8483021005927155630.post-866142598475872122009-09-09T22:23:26.099+05:302009-09-09T22:23:26.099+05:30Prabhu, sorry for the delay in response.
Based on...Prabhu, sorry for the delay in response.<br /><br />Based on the information provided by you and assuming that 6 months have elapsed since the deemed date of allotment of Tata Capital NCDs, the yield till maturity (YTM) works out to be approximately 8.52% p.a. under option 1 (Coupon 11% p.a.), 8.24% p.a. under option 2 (coupon 11.25% p.a.), 9.72% p.a. under option 3 (coupon 12% p.a.) and 10.14% (coupon 12% compounded annually) under option 4.<br /><br />If you want a regular income from NCDs, go for option 3 which provides you with extra returns of more than 1% p.a. as compared to option 1 and 2.<br /><br />But if regular income is not a requirement, go for option 4 which provides you with the maximum returns among all the four investment options. <br /><br />Your second question about the total amount to be invested in Tata Capital NCDs can’t be answered based on the information provided by you. It depends upon many factors such as your existing asset allocation, your risk appetite, time horizon, tax liability and other investments opportunities available to you.<br /><br />P.S. The rates of NCDs are subject to daily changes, so you’ll have to rework the calculation at the time of making investment if there is change in the market rates of the Tata Capital NCDs.Fisherhttp://www.themoneyquest.comnoreply@blogger.com
