This calculator will compute the present value of a bond, given the bond's annual interest payment, value at maturity, and years to maturity, and the investor's required rate of return.

*The present value of a bond can be compared to the bond's current market price in order to help an investor decide whether the bond should be purchased.*

This calculator will compute the yield to maturity (YTM) for a bond, given the bond's annual interest payment, current market price, value at maturity, and years to maturity.

*The yield to maturity for a bond is the internal rate of return that the bond holder will earn if a bond is bought at the current market price and is held to maturity.*

This calculator will compute the current yield of a bond (i.e., the simple yield of a bond), given the current market price of the bond and the bond's annual coupon interest payment.

*The current yield of a bond will vary over time in conjunction with changes in the bond's market price.*

This calculator will compute the yield on a perpetual bond, given the bond's current market price and the annual interest payment for the bond.

*Perpetual bonds have no date of maturity. Therefore the face value of a perpetual bond will ostensibly never be repaid.*
