Some bonds pay interest throughout the bond’s life, while others only pay interest when the bond matures. If you receive the accumulated interest in one payment at maturity, you can use the YIELDMAT function to find the bond’s yield. The annual yield represents the total increase in value during one year. You can use that value to compare this investment with others you’re considering.
