| The Boeing is an aerospace firm. Co. operates in four reportable segments: Commercial Airplanes, which develops, produces and markets commercial jet aircraft principally to the commercial airline industry; Defense, Space and Security, which engages in the research, development, production and modification of manned and unmanned military aircraft and weapons systems; Global Services, which sustains aerospace platforms and systems with a range of products and services; and Boeing Capital, which seeks to ensure that Co.'s customers have the financing they need to buy and take delivery of their Boeing product, while managing overall financing exposure. The BA YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the BA 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 BA 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 BA 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.
