Monetary Policy and Investment Opportunities

By Laura S. Nowak | Go to book overview

maturity will turn out to be higher than expected as the holder reinvests the coupon payments at a rate higher than 8 percent. If interest rates fall, the yield to maturity will turn out to be less than 8 percent.

For global investors, future exchange rate movements on foreign investments and possible changes in tax requirements both at home and abroad are additional risks to consider. Many of the risks encountered in this chapter can be hedged with instruments designed for this purpose. A discussion of hedges will be found in Chapters 9 and 10.

For example, Chrysler Corporation issued $800 million of thirty-year debentures in 1985 with a coupon of 12 percent and Resorts International issued $200 million of B + rated 20-year debt in 1984 with a coupon of 16.25 percent. The prices of the bonds fluctuated over time. Currently, Chrysler's 12's of 2015 are rated BB - and it was priced at 633/4 (in October of 1991). Resorts International's 16.25's have been renegotiated as a result of its reorganization plan.

When RJR Nabisco's management announced a management led leveraged buyout in October of 1988, the price of its A - rated paper declined 20 percent even before their credit rating was officially downgraded. Standard & Poor's placed the issue on its Credit Watch list and Moody's also indicated that it was being watched. (The credit rating change occurred several months later, in March of 1989.)
