If a bond is selling at a discount, the yield to call is a better measure of return than the yield to maturity.

On an expected yield basis, the expected capital gains yield will always be positive because an investor would not purchase a bond with an expected capital loss.

On an expected yield basis, the expected current yield will always be positive because an investor would not purchase a bond that is not expected to pay any cash coupon interest.

If a coupon bond is selling at par, its current yield equals its yield to maturity.

The current yield on Bond A exceeds the current yield on Bond B; therefore, Bond A must have a higher yield to maturity than Bond B.
