YIELD TO MATURITY: The annual rate of return on a financial asset that is held until maturity. Yield to maturity depends on both the coupon rate and the face or par value paid at maturity. If the selling price of a financial asset is equal to its par value, then the yield to maturity is equal to the current yield and the coupon rate. However, if the asset is selling at a discount, then the yield to maturity exceeds the current yield, which is greater than the coupon rate. And if the asset is selling at a premium, then the yield to maturity is less than the current yield, which is below than the coupon rate.

[What's This?]

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time looking for a downtown retail store seeking to buy either a microwave over that won't burn your popcorn or a T-shirt commemorating the first day of winter.

This isn't me! What am I?
