Bond (finance) - Features - Yield


The yield is the rate of return received from investing in the bond. It usually refers either to

  • the current yield, or running yield, which is simply the annual interest payment divided by the current market price of the bond (often the clean price), or to
  • the yield to maturity or redemption yield, which is a more useful measure of the return of the bond, taking into account the current market price, and the amount and timing of all remaining coupon payments and of the repayment due on maturity. It is equivalent to the internal rate of return of a bond.

Famous quotes containing the word yield:

    Such were garrulous and noisy eras, which no longer yield any sound, but the Grecian or silent and melodious era is ever sounding and resounding in the ears of men.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    It is the characteristic of great poems that they will yield of their sense in due proportion to the hasty and the deliberate reader. To the practical they will be common sense, and to the wise wisdom; as either the traveler may wet his lips, or an army may fill its water-casks at a full stream.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Never yield to that temptation, which, to most young men, is very strong, of exposing other people’s weaknesses and infirmities, for the sake either of diverting the company, or of showing your own superiority. You may get the laugh on your side by it for the present; but you will make enemies by it for ever; and even those who laugh with you then, will, upon reflection, fear, and consequently hate you.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)
