bond yield, Also referred to as yield.
One of several numbers describing the annual interest rate paid by a bond:
coupon refers to the annual interest rate paid by a bond that is expressed as a percentage of its par value. This coupon rate is the interest rate fixed at issuance.
current yield refers to the annual interest rate paid by a bond that is expressed as a percentage of its current market price (which can be more or less than its par value).
yield-to-maturity refers to the rate of return measuring the total performance of a bond (coupon payments as well as capital gain or loss) from the time of purchase until its maturity. This estimates what an investor will receive if it holds the bond until its maturity.
