HINT: The best way is to start with the concept of DCF (discounted cash flow analysis) and why it matters to investors by linking it to the Time Value of Money assumption.
You should also recognize the concept of compounding, underlying the calculations of EAR for comparison of interest rates.
Next, try to compare the models in valuation of bonds and stock with variables used (there are different cash flows but both are based on DCF valuation).
Please look at the variables considered and how they affect the value of the financial instrument.
Additionally, discuss limitations of this approach of valuations, and point out what has the major impact on the values.
