understanding financial jargon
The yield is the total return expected from a bond (the interest) or a share (the dividend) divided by the market price of the instrument. This is normally expressed as in terms of the most recent annual return divided by current price.
To compare the yields of different bonds with different maturity dates it is usual to plot a yield curve.
