todolist if expected rate of return is unchanged, nothing will change with the bond
dah62 None of the variables will change but the price will unless everything balances as is the case with selling at par....
jpducros Why not B ? Hasn't a convertible option value an inverse relationship with time to maturity ?
johntan1979 Convertible = benefit investor = selling price higher (premium)

Price will fall until par
Kevdharr Price of a bond gradually moves closer to par as maturity approaches. If a bond is already selling at par, it will remain at par all other things held constant.
