| Acacia Communications is a provider of coherent optical interconnect products. Co.'s products fall into three product groups: embedded modules, pluggable modules and semiconductors. Co.'s embedded module and pluggable module product groups consist of optical interconnect modules for use in long-haul, metro and inter-data center markets. Co.'s semiconductor product group consists of its low-power coherent digital signal processor application-specific integrated circuits and its silicon photonic integrated circuits which are either integrated into its embedded and pluggable modules or sold to customers on a standalone basis for integration into internally developed or other merchant modules. The ACIA YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the ACIA 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 ACIA 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 ACIA 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.
