The highest price at which a security has traded during the current year.Year Low
The lowest price at which a security has traded during the current year.Year To Date Sales
The positions that have closed during the previous calendar year.Yield
The percentage of return an investor receives based on the amount invested or on the current market value of holdings. It is expressed as an annual percentage rate.Yield Based Upon
This field shows at what point in time the rate of return on your investment was calculated (e.g., at maturity).Yield Curve
The relationship between interest rates and time, determined by plotting the yields of all or as many bonds of similar credit quality (eg: Treasuries or AA-rated Corporates), against their maturities. Yield curves typically slope upward since longer maturities normally have higher yields, although it can be flat or even inverted.
The Fixed Income Search Results Scattergraph shows several smoothed yield curves for different fixed-income product types and credit qualities. These are based on bonds that Fidelity recognizes and are not equal to the entire universe of bonds, which is significantly larger than the number of bonds offered by Fidelity on any given day.Yield Curve: Corporate A
The interpolated yield curve for corporate bonds rated from A+ to A- by S&P, or from A1 to A3 by Moody's.Yield Curve: Corporate AAA/AA
The interpolated yield curve for the highest quality U.S. Corporate bonds. In this instance containing bonds, rated from AAA to AA- by S&P, and/or from Aaa to Aa3 by Moody's.Yield Curve: Corporate BBB
The interpolated yield curve for corporate bonds rated from BBB+ to BBB- by S&P, or from Baa1 to Baa3 by Moody's.Yield Curve: Municipal General Obligation/Muni AAA G.O.
The interpolated yield curve for Municipal AAA-rated General Obligation bonds. The source for this yield curve is Municipal Market Advisors or MMA.Yield Curve: Treasury
The most well known yield curve is the US Treasury yield curve which is based upon several hundred actively trading US Treasury bonds.Yield Limit
When trading secondary market or new issue fixed income offerings, the yield limit is the lowest annual yield at which you are willing to buy the securities.Yield Range
This is a range within which the yield for a new issue, fixed income offering (e.g., bond) is expected to be set. Yield is the annual percentage rate of return on an investment.
For an indication of interest, either the yield range or price range is displayed.
In Bond Ladders, shows the range of yields for all bonds meeting your criteria for the rung that are offered by Fidelity. This is not a benchmark, nor does it represent the universe of securities which would meet the criteria.
If a bond is quoted to call date, interest rates have declined and the bond's issuer is likely to call the bond on the next call date if it is favorable to the issuer's interests. If a bond is called, the bond holder's interest payments cease and the principal is returned as of call date. If the bond holder seeks to reinvest this principal in a similar bond issue, he will likely have to accept a lower yield (and lower interest payments) consistent with prevailing interest rates.
Yield to Sink
The rate of return to the investor earned from payments of principal and interest, with interest compounded (typically semi-annually) at the stated yield, presuming that the security is redeemed on the next scheduled sinking fund date.
Yield to Worst
The lowest potential yield that can be received on a bond without the issuer actually defaulting. Calculated by making worst-case scenario assumptions on the issue by calculating the returns that would be received if any in-whole mandatory redemptive provisions are exercised by the issuer. Partial redemptive provisions (such as sinking funds) are not included in Yield to Worst calculations. The Yield to Worst metric is used to evaluate the worst-case scenario for yield to help investors manage risks and ensure that specific income requirements will still be met even in the worst scenarios.
On fixed income (e.g., bond) search results screens, this is the type of yield the yield value shown represents. For example:
On Indication of Interest screens, this is the type of yield the yield value shown represents. For example: Market
The percent gain or loss that the portfolio has achieved over the Year To Date (YTD) period. Refer to the "as of" date to determine the exact period.
