If a long-term, interest-baring investment is held until its maturity date, the yield to maturity is the estimated rate of return the investor will gain.

Yield to maturity is similar to current yield, but it also takes into account any gain or loss of principal at maturity.

Likewise, if a $1,000 par bond is purchased for $1090, there will be a $90 loss in principal at maturity. Yield to maturity is a precise measure that allows you to compare bonds with different maturities that sell for more or less than par. The trouble is, it is a complex calculation that isn't printed in the paper, so you'll have to get it from your broker or bond dealer.

The yield to maturity equals all the interest you receive from the time you purchase the bond until maturity (including interest on interest at the original purchasing yield) plus any gain (if you purchased the bond below its face, or par value) or loss (if you purchased it above its face value). The tax payable on the interest and the capital repayments is ignored.

The rate of return yield by a bond held to maturity when both compound interest payments and the investor's capital gain or loss on the security are taken into account.

The return of an interest-bearing investment, usually applied to a bond. Yield to maturity measures the rate of return of the bond if held to maturity, considering purchase price, redemption value, time to maturity, coupon yield and the time between interest payments.

Similar to current yield, yield to maturity also takes into account any gain or loss of principal at maturity. Yield to maturity allows comparison of bonds with different maturities selling for more or less than par.

Is the rate of return which is measured by the current expected income stream relative to the prevailing market price assuming that the asset is held until maturity.

Other factors that must be evaluated before including a particular bond in a portfolio include the bond's credit quality, tax status, maturity date, call date and current yield.

The average annual yield of a fully amortized loan, that is held by an investor for the life of the loan. The average rate takes into the account the fact that the outstanding principal, and consequently the amount of interest, declines each year until the loan is fully paid. When the term is used in reference to a bond or other security, it means the average annual rate of return of the security when held to maturity, taking into account discounts or premiums paid when the security is purchased and capital gains or losses.

The percentage rate of return paid on a bond, note, or other fixed income security if the investor buys and holds it to its maturity date.

The YTM will be greater than the current yield when the bond is selling at a discount and will be less if it is selling at a premium. YTM can be approximated using a bond yield table or can be determined using a programmable calculator equipped for bond calculations. YTM is used extensively in comparing fixed income investments, making fixed income portfolio decisions, and in financial planning. See: Yield To Average Life; Yield To Call
