Year-to-Date-Return

When looking at equities and other return metrics, a popular one many glance as is year to date returns, which is exactly what is says. Year to date returns is quick measurement that you can compare against others across the board. This data point in itself provides value, but it should not be relied upon because it does not tell the whole story. The year to date returns could be slowed or lower for reasons such as acquisition costs hit, which for the short term appears bad but the long term it appears great.

A more reliable light to use this in is with fundamental analysis because that will shed light on the reasons for the returns being the way they are. You can take a look at items such as earnings per share or revenue to gauge why the year to date return is what it is. Now if you apply this to a technical chart, you may not get the same results. Yes, you can look at historical data and movements, but it doesn’t explain why those movements occurred.

Overall, this is a useful tool to begin you search and see what is out there, but it may not be the best decision to put a lot of weight into it. Let it be a filter to identify what is worth you time and go from there. Fundamental analysis with this tool would work the best, giving you the most well rounded answer. If you get stuck and need some help with anything, reach out to an investing and trading community and ask for opinions, that way you can see how it is actually being applied in the finance world.
