| ACI Worldwide develops, markets, installs, and supports a range of software products and solutions primarily focused on facilitating real-time electronic payments. Co.'s payment capabilities, technologies, and solutions are marketed under the brand name Universal Payments. In addition to its own products, Co. distributes, or acts as a sales agent for software developed by third parties. These products and services are used globally by banks, financial intermediaries, and a range of transaction-generating endpoints, including automated teller machines, merchant point-of-sale terminals, bank branches, mobile phones, tablets, corporations, and internet commerce sites. The ACIW YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the ACIW 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 ACIW 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 ACIW 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.
