I nvestment A nalysis II Investment Analysis II - © 2012 Houman Younessi 2 Interest and Interest Rates (perhaps a review) Interest is the fee paid by the borrower to the lender for the possession of an asset for a fixed period of time. Interest is usually calculated in terms of the percentage of monetary value of the asset for a specific period of time (e.g. a year). This is called an interest rate. In investment finance we define interest rate as the relative return of “risk-free” securities.

I nvestment A nalysis II Investment Analysis II - © 2012 Houman Younessi 3 Interest Rate Calculation Simple Time Independent interest (usually simply called interest) is the pure difference between the purchase price of the debt (the amount the borrower must pay at maturity) and the face value of the amount borrowed at contract time (principal) presented as a percentage with respect to the face value. Example: I borrowed \$100 from my son and have agreed to pay him \$110 “when he needs his money back”. What is the interest? Answer: Maturity time is “when he needs his money back”, it is fixed but not a constant. The interest is the pure difference the principal and purchase price: Note: Such interest is not time based. He may ask for his money back in ten years (his loss) or tomorrow (mine)

Example: I borrowed \$100 from my son and have agreed to pay him \$110 in exactly one year. What is the interest rate? Answer: Maturity time is exactly one year, it is fixed and constant. The interest rate still is the pure difference the principal and purchase price: Note: Such interest rate is now time based. He can now only ask for his money back in exactly one year per annum

I nvestment A nalysis II Interest Rate Calculation What if he wanted his money sooner, or I wanted to borrow the money for longer than one year ? There should be no problem. The interest rate may be calculated for any period of time. These periods usually range from a day (overnight) to multiple years (30 year loan). Each rate is calculated exactly the same. Note: the numerical value of the rate is the same, but the actual rate is not the same. This is 10% every three months Example: I borrowed \$100 from my son and have agreed to pay him \$110 in exactly 3 months. What is the interest rate? Per Quarter

I nvestment A nalysis II Interest rate calculation What if he offered to lend me the money at 2.5% a quarter or 10% per annum, which deal should I take? \$2.5 Per Quarter x 4 Quarters = \$10 Per Annum There is no difference. So: Note: I am not paying interest on the interest. I am borrowing \$100, keeping it for 3 months, then return it along with the \$2.50 interest; then borrow \$100 again, keep it for 3 months, then return it along with the \$2.5 interest………(a total of four times)

I nvestment A nalysis II What if he realized that if I kept the money for a whole year and return the principal and interest at the end of the year, at the end of the 3 rd month, he is actually lending me \$102.5 and at therefore at the end of the 6 th month I have \$102.5 (1+0.025)= \$105.06 of his money and I should pay interest on that sum for the third quarter and so on. At what effective annual rate have I borrowed the \$100? Note: Now I am paying interest on interest and as such end up paying \$0.38 more This is called Compound Interest Interest Rate Calculation or in general:

One very good way of evaluating the value of various different payment patterns is to determine their present value. The better investment (ceteris paribus) is the one with a higher present value If we know the interest rate, in a simple situation, the present value is the future value divided by (1+r). So d=1/(1+r) is called the discount factor. In the case of payments at a future different from a year, the rate is expressed in its equivalent annual rate (r). If the payment takes place in 1/n years, using simple interest rule the discount factor is: The compound version is:

They must be: Competent – But know the limits of theory Confident – But not overly so Controlled (in control of their biases) – But not robots Connected (informed of what is going on and able to exert some influence) But not corrupt also helps if they are:

I nvestment A nalysis II Investment Analysis II - © 2012 Houman Younessi Over-confidence 11 Most people are over-confident, we are probably wired that way We tend to take credit for our successes and blame our failures on others or on bad luck

I nvestment A nalysis II Investment Analysis II - © 2012 Houman Younessi In terms of trading, this means: 12 Most people over-trade (have higher turn-over than necessary) Most people take on more risk than necessary Even if you were right in selling A and buying B (usually not the case with over-confident investors), the trading fees will kill you In the long-run, you lose more than you need to for the same amount of return intended
