Realized yield

Realized yield

The holding-period return actually generated from an investment in a bond.

Realized Yield

The return on a bond during the time one holds the bond, usually expressed in annualized terms. The realized yield is calculated by taking the income and other gains on the bond and dividing by the historical cost. It is a useful way to compare the expected return to the actual return, though with bonds there is rarely a difference unless the bond defaults.

80% over the next five years, the realized yield on the TIPS will exceed that of the regular bond.
RERC's findings highlight the disconnected relationship between required and realized yield rates, and demonstrate the variation between return expectations over io-, five- and one-year time periods.
However, all other property types show a negative variance for a 10-year period, indicating that over this time, realized yield rates have not met required yield rates.
Adjustments estimated below are affected by how, on balance, interest rate shifts impact the realized yield on dedicated portfolios.
Mathematical Expression Omitted] where r' = realized yield on dedicated portfolios during period between t = 0 and t = k; g' = realized rate of wages growth during period between t = 0 and t=k; (r'-g'), k = realized differential; (r'-g')t=o = contemporaneous differential;7 X' = coefficient of adjustment for dedicated portfolios; and k length of period.
Since installing the technology at their sites, our customers have realized yield improvement that is between 2 to 5 percent better than competing technologies, such as air blow, water and solvent-based cleaning.
He continued, "The realized yield so far is consistent with our expectation of the potential resource and projected value of this property.
The study assessed two dimensions of this correlation known as yield-price elasticity: first, the extent to which realized yields tend to be influenced by planting-time futures prices; and second, the potential for in-season changes responding to significant price swings.
