5. Yes, as a potential investor I will invest in TargetCorporation bonds. Target’s bonds currently yield around 3.5% andthis is higher than 30 year treasury yield of 2.5%, 10 yeartreasury yield of 1.75% and S&P 500 yield of 2.08%. Also thelong run default probability of Target bonds is very low, on arelative basis.

6. With increase in interest rates the existing bonds of TargetCorporation will become less attractive for investors. This isbecause investors will look to park their investments ininstruments that are offering higher interest rates. This will leadto a decline in demand for Target’s bonds and as a result itsprices will fall in the market.

Target Corporation will react to increased interest rates byoffering their bonds at a discount so as to make it attractive fornew investors.
