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.

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.
The averages of the ex post or realized yields on dedicated portfolios and the ex post rates of growth in wages were approximately the same.
Adjustments estimated below are affected by how, on balance, interest rate shifts impact the realized yield on dedicated portfolios.
