kJH, some more descriptive titles would help

B, 4.27% PV=-104.21, N=4, PMT=3, FV=101, CPT I/Y=2.1329, multiply by 2 = 4.2659~4.27%

D: 4.82% N = 8, PV = -104.21, PMT = 3, FV = 100, CPT I/Y and multiply by 2

Isn’t yield to worst the yield to call?

I think you’re right…

4.27

I said B - like Map… YTM is 4.82% YTC is 4.27%…I believe yield to worst would equal YTC in this case? KJH - what is the answer?

YTW is generally the lowest of YTC or YTM, since YTC is lower, I thought B is the answer.

map1 is 100% right, I do this every day, seems to be the only thing related to FI that i know around here. Check a Bloomberg computer…

Would have gone better if my P/Y wasn’t on 12 though. I/Y does not = 25%! LOL

I am showing 4.27 as worst being YTC, YTM at 4.82%. B
