Bond Yield

Bond Yield

The income one receives from a bond investment, rather than its capital appreciation. The yield is calculated as the coupons the investor receives in a year expressed as a percentage of the cost of the investment. In general, riskier bonds have higher yields. Measuring the direction of bond yields over time is one way to try to predict future economic movements. See also: Yield curve.
