The bond-related formulas and functions in the previous chapters assume that every period is the same length. For example, that coupon payments occur every three, six, or twelve months. Some bonds have irregular first or last periods, where the payment dates don’t fit any of those patterns. When you want to calculate the yield of a bond with an odd first period, use the ODDFYIELD function.
- [Instructor] The bond-related formulas and functions…in the previous chapters assume…that every period is of the same length.…For example, the coupon payments occur…every three, six, or 12 months.…However, some bonds have irregular first or last periods,…where the payment dates don't fit any of those patterns.…So Excel includes a set of functions you can use…to evaluate those securities.…In this movie, I will show you how to calculate…the yield of a security that has an odd first period.…As my sample file, I will use OddFirstYield_06_02.xlsx…which you can find in the chapter six folder…of your exercise files collection.…
This function requires a substantial amount of information.…So let's go through the arguments one by one.…The first is the settlement date, and that is the date…that you actually take possession of the security.…Next is the maturity date, and that's the date…when the investment ends, and you receive any monies…that you're due.…Next is the issue date, and that is the date…that the investment or bond was actually issued.…
