“How much did I earn on that investment?” That question isn’t always easy to answer, even for a relatively simple interest-bearing investment. To learn whether a particular savings-type or bond investment has been successful, you must consider two other questions:

  • “How much interest did I earn while waiting to get my money back?” and
     
  • “Did I get back less money or more money than I put in?”
