ORDER ENTRY Definition
ORDER ENTRY, normally, is a computerized relational database that, at a minimum, generates schedules and maintains estimates, sales orders and backlogs. Invoices may also be created automatically if linked to Accounts Receivable. More advanced order entry systems are usually fully integrated with the accounting system.

RECAST EARNINGS is a recalculation of earnings based on the assumption that certain expenses could be eliminated through new forms of cost savings. Recast earnings are often used in the analysis of a takeover or merger.
YIELD is the annual return on an investment, expressed as a percentage. The yield to redemption or maturity (the same thing) combines the running yield with the "pull to redemption"; thus a bond which has a 10% coupon and exactly one year of remaining life will sell at $98.2% when interest rates are at 12.0%, that 12.0% being composed of 10.2% running yield and 1.8% pull to redemption ($100.0 - 98.2%).
