Spreadsheet to calculate yield to maturity
Next we need to use the excel function known as Price() to calculate the yields of each bond value listed above. To do this select an empty cell in your worksheet and use this formula: =Price(rate/2 , ‘par value’, 0 ,’maturity date’- ‘current market value’) where rate is referring to your coupon rate divided by 2 (since it is paid semiannually). It should look like this: =Price(4.5%,1000,-0,’10’-945.50). This will give you an annualized yield of 9.87%. Repeat this step for each bond value listed above noting that dependencies may vary due to varying dates entered in previous steps so these values must be changed accordingly in both current formulas just created as well as any other formulas already existing on worksheet .
