Indicated Yield
Source: Encyclopedia of Banking & Finance (9h Edition) by Charles J Woelfel
(We recommend this as work of authority.)

Sometimes used to refer to yields on bonds (either current return or yields to maturity) and stocks, especially when yield is determined by reference to YIELD tables.  CROP REPORTS also list indicated yields of crops.

Where common stocks are not on a REGULAR DIVIDEND basis, the indicated yield may be figured on DIVIDEND payments "indicated" by current announcements concerning future dividends or by total paid in the last twelve months.
