Create PAC and Sequential CMO

This example shows how to use an underlying mortgage-backed security (MBS) pool for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage of 6% to define a PAC bond, and then define a sequential CMO from the PAC bond. Analyze the CMO by comparing the CMO spread to a zero-rate curve for a 30-year Treasury bond and then calculate the weighted-average life (WAL) for the PAC bond.

Step 1. Define the underlying mortgage pool.

principal = 100000000;
grossrate = 0.06;
coupon = 0.05;
originalTerm = 360;
termRemaining = 360;
speed = 100;
delay = 14;

Settle      = datenum('1-Jan-2011');
IssueDate   = datenum('1-Jan-2011');
Maturity    = addtodate(IssueDate, 360, 'month');

Step 2. Calculate underlying pool cash flow.

[CFlowAmounts, CFlowDates, ~, ~, ~, UnitPrincipal, UnitInterest, ...
UnitPrepayment] = mbscfamounts(Settle, Maturity, IssueDate, grossrate, ...
coupon, delay, speed, []);

Step 3. Calculate prepayments.

principalPayments = UnitPrincipal * principal;
netInterest = UnitInterest * principal;
prepayments = UnitPrepayment * principal;
dates = CFlowDates' + delay;

Step 4. Generate a plot for underlying MBS payments.

area([principalPayments'+prepayments', netInterest'])
title('Underlying MBS Payments');
legend('Principal Payments (incl. Prepayments)', 'Interest Payments')

Step 5. Calculate the PAC schedule.

pacSpeed = [80 300];
[balanceSchedule, pacInitBalance] = ...
cmosched(principal, grossrate, originalTerm, termRemaining, ...
pacSpeed, []);

Step 6. Generate a plot for the PAC principal balance schedule.

figure;
area([pacInitBalance'; balanceSchedule'])
title('PAC Principal Balance Schedule');
legend('Principal Balance Schedule');

Step 7. Calculate PAC cash flow.

pacTranchePrincipals = [pacInitBalance; principal-pacInitBalance];
pacTrancheCoupons = [0.05; 0.05];
[pacBalances, pacPrincipals, pacInterests] = ...
cmoschedcf(principalPayments+prepayments, ...
pacTranchePrincipals, pacTrancheCoupons, balanceSchedule);

Step 8. Generate a plot for the PAC CMO tranches.

Generate a plot for the PAC CMO tranches:

figure;
area([pacPrincipals' pacInterests']);
title('PAC CMO (PAC and Support Tranches)');
legend('PAC Principal Payments', 'Support Principal Payments', ...
'PAC Interest Payments', 'Support Interest Payments');

Step 9. Create sequential CMO from the PAC bond.

CMO tranches, A, B, C, and D

seqTranchePrincipals = ...
[20000000; 20000000; 10000000; pacInitBalance-50000000];
seqTrancheCoupons = [0.05; 0.05; 0.05; 0.05];

Step 10. Calculate cash flows for each tranche.

[seqBalances, seqPrincipals, seqInterests] = ...
cmoseqcf(pacPrincipals(1, :), seqTranchePrincipals, ...
seqTrancheCoupons, false);

Step 11. Generate a plot for the sequential PAC CMO.

Generate a plot for the sequential PAC CMO:

figure
area([seqPrincipals' pacPrincipals(2, :)' pacInterests']);
title('Sequential PAC CMO and Support Tranches');
legend('Sequential PAC Principals (A)', 'Sequential PAC Principals (B)', ...
'Sequential PAC Principals (C)', 'Sequential PAC Principals (D)', ...
'Support Principal Payments', 'PAC Interest Payments', ...
'Support Interest Payments');

Step 12. Create the discount curve.

CurveSettle = datenum('1-Jan-2011');
ZeroRates = [0.01 0.03 0.10 0.19 0.45 0.81 1.76 2.50 3.18 4.09 4.38]'/100;
CurveTimes = [1/12 3/12 6/12 1 2 3 5 7 10 20 30]';
CurveDates = daysadd(CurveSettle, 360 * CurveTimes, 1);
zeroCurve = intenvset('Rates', ZeroRates, 'StartDates', CurveSettle, ...
'EndDates', CurveDates);

Step 13. Price the CMO cash flows.

The cash flow for the sequential PAC principal A tranche is calculated using the cash flow functions cfbyzero, cfyield, cfprice, and cfspread.

cflows = seqPrincipals(1, :)+seqInterests(1, :);
cfdates = dates(2:end)';
price1 = cfbyzero(zeroCurve, cflows, cfdates, Settle, 4)
price1 = 2.2109e+07
yield = cfyield(cflows, cfdates, price1, Settle, 'Basis', 4)
yield = 0.0090
price2 = cfprice(cflows, cfdates, yield, Settle, 'Basis', 4)
price2 = 2.2109e+07
spread = cfspread(zeroCurve, price2, cflows, cfdates, Settle, 'Basis', 4)
spread = 8.5711e-13
WAL = sum(cflows .* yearfrac(Settle, cfdates, 4)) / sum(cflows)
WAL = 2.5408

The weighted average life (WAL) for the sequential PAC principal A tranche is 2.54 years.
