COST DRIVER is any activity or series of activities that takes place within an organization and causes costs to be incurred. Cost drivers are used in a system of activity-based costing to charge costs to products or services. Cost drivers are applied to cost pools, which relate to common activities. Cost drivers are not restricted to departments or sections, as more than one activity may be identified within a department.
CURRENT YIELD, in bonds, is the annual interest or dividend payments expressed as a percentage of the bond's current price. For bonds, where yield to maturity factors in the original purchase price, current yield is strictly a measure of the income stream.
