A mutual fund's yield over a given period of time. The historical yield may be measured over one, two or even five years. It provides a reference for the mutual fund's current performance. For example, if the yield in year five is 4%, one might compare it to the historical yield in years one through four to see whether or not 4% is a good return on that particular mutual fund.
