| American Assets Trust is a self-administered real estate investment trust that owns, operates, acquires and develops retail, office, multifamily and mixed-use properties in Southern California, Northern California, Oregon, Washington, Texas and Hawaii. Co. operates in four segments: Retail, which primarily include rental of retail space and other tenant services, including tenant reimbursements, parking and storage space rental; Office, which primarily include rental of office space and other tenant services; Multifamily, which include rental of apartments and other tenant services; and Mixed-use, which include rental of retail space and other tenant services. The AAT YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the AAT YTD return page and across the coverage universe of our site,
is a measure of the total return for a given investment year-to-date for the current calendar year
(up to the end of prior trading session). Arguably, choosing the current calendar year for a measurement
period is on the one hand completely arbitrary, but on the other hand a year-to-date look can be extremely
useful in the context of our country's tax system which taxes gains and income on a calendar year basis.
Thus, researching Year-To-Date Returns is good practice for investors — whether AAT YTD return or other benchmarks/peers
— and when doing so it is also important to factor in dividends, because a financial instrument's YTD return is
more than just the change in price if that instrument pays a dividend or coupon. Our website aims to empower investors
by performing the AAT YTD return calculation (with any dividends reinvested as applicable), and to provide a
coverage universe of many stocks and ETFs to be able to compare YTD returns.
