ODDFYIELD Function

The ODDFYIELD function is one of the financial functions. It is used to calculate the yield of a security that pays periodic interest but has an odd first period (it is shorter or longer than other periods).

The ODDFYIELD function syntax is:

ODDFYIELD(settlement, maturity, issue, first-coupon, rate, pr, redemption, frequency[, [basis]])

where

settlement is the date when the security is purchased.

maturity is the date when the security expires.

issue is the issue date of the security.

first-coupon is the first coupon date. This date must be after the settlement date but before the maturity date.

rate is the security interest rate.

pr is the purchase price of the security, per $100 par value.

redemption is the redemption value of the security, per $100 par value.

frequency is the number of interest payments per year. The possible values are: 1 for annual payments, 2 for semiannual payments, 4 for quarterly payments.

basis is the day count basis to use, a numeric value greater than or equal to 0, but less than or equal to 4. It is an optional argument. It can be one of the following:

Numeric value Count basis
0 US (NASD) 30/360
1 Actual/actual
2 Actual/360
3 Actual/365
4 European 30/360
