Jamil (6 months ago)
So in order to evaluate a great bond you would have to calculate the real interest value, correct? Ex: if a central bank sets the interest rate at 6% and the the coupon rate is 7%, then you would have made a profit. It's tricky because you'd have to anticipate what the interest rate is gonna be, anyone have any thoughts on this?

AntiTroll101 (2 years ago)
i have a question: don't bonds have floating interest rates that change based on LIBOR + previous cycle interest rates? so wouldn't the coupon not necessarily be $50 every month?
Trulee Y (2 years ago)
So companies can sell equity that they actually don't have? Where would the $5m come from and how would they get people to buy shares on it?

How can you issue new shares without diluting the other shares?
Jerry Robinson (7 months ago)
David Lewis when the company issued the new shares, the share amount jumped to 1.5 instead of 1 million shares. Therefore, they were diluted
Zahuruddin Sheikh (1 year ago)
when you calculate the profits happened for that financial year, last year your asset including profit would be 50 billion dollars and this financial year calculating the launches and profits made from it the profit goes up and its 90 billion dollar, suddenly jeff Bezos is the richest man on eart, stock prices go up now ppl are buying it all over, tommorow someone tweeted something bad abt the company and the reputation dropped and ppl were afraid that customers wont buy anymore frm this company lets sell this stock, the entire process happens in reverse, now the asset goes down and stock value goes down also! BOOM jeff is no more the richest man in the world!
Skyclad Crown (2 years ago)
In the case of shares, you are either selling shares held by the company to create liquid assets or selling new shares to buy additional equity and therefore increase company asset value, ideally equal to the new shares created, not changing the price per share.
Piotr Drużkowski (2 years ago)
+David Lewis Because you're increasing the amount of assets aswell.
eziel domingues (3 years ago)
+David Lewis I see, dosent make any sense! Very confused video badly  explained!

theres something i don't understand: what happens if you buy a countries bond a the country goes default on year lets say 2016 but bond mature at year 2020 and the country recovers from default by that time will the country pay the loan or since it went on default on the period from when you bought the bonds to age of maturity then it won't pay ? im liking the Venezuela bonds

Hi, what sort of a gadget did you use to produce a video like this? Is it some sort of a writing tool?

thank you,very well explained
David Trinh (4 years ago)
the best clearest video out there. most introduction videos dont even tell you how much you receive as the holder of the bond and just segue into a flurry of complicated information. more videos need to take it step by step like this and explain exactly how each entity of the party makes money and the reasons behind it. well done

You do not take into account share price dillusion for issuing new shares???
XXXDEADHEAD (5 years ago)
Company can sometimes buy back the bonds when market rates are low and re-issue (in a sense they can refinance the loan)
Rey Ponce (5 years ago)
ok, i see now what this means = i can control the universe with this "interest"
unkown101 (5 years ago)
but that means that the first million shareholders get less money because there are 500k extra shareholders.
Boljarin (5 years ago)
So the 500k is kinda like a kickstarter? "We're going to collectively give you 500k to invest in the new factory?". Or would the owner just raise the shares without specifying why?
