🔄 Coupon Bond Price Calculation from Yield

As mentioned earlier, you can calculate the bond price using the conventional formula. Use the below formula in the C10 cell to find the Coupon Bond Price.

=C9*(1-(1+(C7 /C6))^(-C6*C5 ))/(C7/C6)+(C4/(1 + (C7/C6))^(C6*C5))

Method 2: Using FV Function to Calculate Bond Price from Yield in Excel

Alternative to the conventional formula, users can calculate different bond prices using the PV function. The PV function returns the present value of the investment. The syntax of the PV function is:

PV (rate, nper, pmt, [fv], [type])

In the syntax, the arguments are:

rate; the discount/interest rate.

nper; the number of payments during the period.

pmt; payment incurred in each payment.

fv; the future value. Default value is zero (0). [Optional]

type; the payment type, For, end of period = 0, beginning of period = 1. Default is zero (0). [Optional]

The Coupon Rate can be referred to as Nominal Yield. So, in the calculation, we take the Coupon Rate as Nominal Yield.


🔄 Annual Coupon Bond Price

Type the following formula in cell C9.

=PV(C7,C6,C4*C8,C4)

In the formula, rate = C7, nper= C6, pmt = C4*C8, [fv] =C4.

🔄 Semi-Annual Coupon Bond Price

In cell C9 insert the following formula.

=PV(C7/2,C6,C4*C8/2,C4)

In the formula, rate = C7/2 (as it’s a semi-annual bond price), nper= C6, pmt = C4*C8/2, [fv] =C4.

Method 3: Calculating Bond Price Using the PRICE Function

The PRICE function returns the price of a par value (i.e., $100 or others) of investment which pays a successive interest. The syntax of the PRICE function is:

PRICE(settlement, maturity, rate, yld, redemption, frequency, [basis])

 ➤ Use the following formula in any blank cell (i.e., C11).

 =PRICE(C4,C5,C6,C7,C8,C9,C10)
