 YIELD: The rate of return on a financial asset. In some simple cases, the yield on a financial asset, like commercial paper, corporate bond, or government security, is the asset's interest rate. However, as a more general rule, the yield includes both the interest earned from an asset plus any changes in the asset's price. Suppose, for example, that a \$100,000 bond has a 10 percent interest rate, such that the holder receives \$10,000 interest per year. If the price of the bond increases over the course of the year from \$100,000 to \$105,000, then the bond's yield is greater than 10 percent. It includes the \$10,000 interest plus the \$5,000 bump in the price, giving a yield of 15 percent. Because bonds and similar financial assets often have fixed interest payments, their prices and subsequently yields move up and down as economic conditions change.
