Yield
Yield is the amount of money (usually expressed as dividend payment or interest payment), that is returned on investment. Yield is usually expressed as an annual percentage rate calculated by dividing the interest payment by the investment's cost(such as market value, or face value).

 

Yield to Maturity
Yield to Maturity, also known as book yield or redemption yield, is the total return expected on investment if the investment is held until maturity. Yield to maturity is often used in the context of bonds where it is considered the internal rate of return (IRR) of a bond if it is held to maturity and its coupon payments are reinvested at the same rate.
