By compounding the monthly, quarterly or yearly rate over 12 months, which gives you an estimated annual percentage yield (APY).

This makes it easier for investors who have shorter-term savings goals such as saving up for a vacation or buying a car. For example, if someone had $10,000 invested in a certificate of deposit (CD) at 6 percent compounded annually over five years, he would earn $1,890 interest by the end of five years; however if he had invested his money at 6 percent compounded monthly over five years he would earn $2,065 interest by the end of those same five years."""
