Regarding the bond swap opportunity: 1. Compute the current yield and the promised yield (use semiannual compounding) for the bond the Carters currently hold and for each of the 3 swap candidates. 2. Do any of the swap candidates provide better current income and/or current yield than the Beta Corporation bonds the Carters now hold? If so, which one(s)? 3. Do you see any reason why Marlene should switch from her present bond holding into one of the other issues? If so, which swap candidate would be the best choice? Why?
