Gina why is I/Y not 4.5%?
Gina oops, okay:
current yield=annual interest payment/bond price=.08
katybo first calculate YTM
jgwl why do you use PV = 0?
kindal to calculate only coupon interest and reinvestment interest excluding any gain/loss in capital.
moneyguy You don't need to enter a PV amount when calculating. Just calculate FV of all coupon payments at YTM rate. Then subtract total coupon payments.
Emily1119 For current yield= annual interest payment/ bond price=0.08.
How can I know the annual interest payment?
2014 Capital invested was not 100, but 107.23. Then, why reduced only 100 but not 107.23

tshepi i am totally lost when it comes to this kind of questions
jasonkwk tshepi , actually it is very easy:

first you have to find the YTM ,give the 4 available variable

second, substitute the YTM into I/Y and set PV=0 to find FV.

the FV is the total return, minus the coupon payment and you will get the reinvestment income.
pranubal AnalystNotes is using this formula

Coupon[(1 +YTM )N - 1 ] / YTM in decimal to calculate total earnings.
