How is it that my calculator is not calculating the right answer?

Question is: what value woudl an investor place on an 20-year, $1,000 face value, %10% annual coupon bond, if the investor required a 9% rate of return?

Answer: 1091

I’ve entered this a million times and keep getting 734.423677… I’ve 2nd clr tmv several times so I’m not sure what is going on…

Thanks! I got the right answer with the logic in your second point but was concerned I wasn’t able to get the right answer on my calc. Didn’t know PMT and FV had to be the same signs…

Think of PV as an outflow (you’re paying to buy the bond) so keep it negative. FV and PMT are both inflows (coupon payment and return of principal at maturity) so I keep them positive.
