Holding Period Return/Yield
The total return received from holding an asset or portfolio of assets. Holding period return/yield is calculated as the sum of all income and capital growth divided by the value at the beginning of the period being measured.

Holding Period Return/Yield

Holding period return is a very basic way to measure how much return you have obtained on a particular investment. This calculation is on a per-dollar-invested basis, rather than a time basis, which makes it difficult to compare returns on different investments with different time frames. When making comparisons such as this, the annualized calculation shown above should be used.
