This page seems to duplicate the information contained within the page entitled 'Perpetuity'. I would suggest combining the information contained herein with that page and re-directing a search on 'Perpetual Bond' to that location. Foggy1974 09:50, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

Is it that perpectual bonds' price very volatile, thus not much price protection on the bonds purchased?Edit

Since the perpectual bonds have no maturity date, thus, the price of the perps could be very volatile, and there is not much protection on the capital invested in the perps?

I believe the formula y/i is incorrect. It should be i/y. The higher the coupon, the higher the price, and the higher the yield the lower the price. WinthropTSmith (talk) 18:56, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
