Yield-to-Maturity Yield- toYield-to-maturity, or yield, is the single Yield- torate that when used to discount a bond's cash flows, produces the bond's market price. Yield is not a good measure of relative Yield value or of realized return to maturity. If a bond's YTM remains unchanged over a If short time period, that bond's realized total rate of return equals its yield. 1 102 + 18.125 3.125 3.125 3.125 103.125 = + + + 2 3 4 y⎛ 32 y⎞ ⎛ y⎞ ⎛ y⎞ 1+ 2 ⎜1 + 2 ⎟ ⎜1 + 2 ⎟ ⎜1 + 2 ⎟ ⎝ ⎠⎝ ⎠⎝ ⎠ YTM=4.8875% YTM=4.8875% The price of a T-year security making Tsemiannual payments of c/2 and a final principal payment of F is: 2T P (T ) = ∑ t =1 c/2 (1 + y / 2 ) c⎡ ⎛ 1 ⎞ P(T ) = ⎢1 − ⎜ ⎟ y ⎢ ⎝ 1+ y / 2 ⎠ ⎣ t 2T + F (1 + y / 2 ) 2T 2T ⎤ ⎛1⎞ ⎥+F⎜ ⎟ ⎥ ⎝ 1+ y / 2 ⎠ ⎦ From the formula When Coupon Rate = YTM. Par bonds. When When Coupon Rate > YTM, Premium When bonds. The bonds are selling for more than face value. When Coupon Rate < YTM, Discount When bonds, or the bond sells at a discount to par. 2 Bond prices approach par as they Bond approach maturity: pull to par. If a bond's YTM over a six-month period sixremains unchanged, the annual total return of the bond over that period equals its YTM.
