Question:

A 180‐day U.S. T‐bill with a par value of $1,000 is issued at a discount of 8%. The bond equivalent yield for this security is closest to:

A 8.45%.
explanation

Purchase price = 1,000 − [0.08 x (180 / 360) x 1,000] = $960
Bond equivalent yield = [(1,000 − 960) / 960] x 365 / 180 = 8.45%
