Enter the net realized return ($) and the principal amount ($) into the Return on Yield Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Return on Yield. 

Return on Yield Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Return on Yield. 

ROY = NRR / PA *100

  • Where ROY is the Return on Yield (%)
  • NRR is the net realized return ($) 
  • PA is the principal amount ($) 

How to Calculate Return on Yield?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Return on Yield.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the net realized return ($). 
    • The net realized return ($) is given as: 567.
  2. Next, determine the principal amount ($). 
    • The principal amount ($) is provided as: 4000.
  3. Finally, calculate the Return on Yield using the equation above: 

ROY = NRR / PA *100

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

ROY = 567 / 4000 *100 = 14.175 (%)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

net realized return ($) = 875

principal amount ($) = 6000

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer. 

ROY = NRR / PA *100 = ?
