| Black Hills is a utility holding company, which operates in four segments: Electric Utilities, which generates, transmits and distributes electricity to customers in South Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado and Montana; Gas Utilities, which serves natural gas utility customers in Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas and Wyoming; Power Generation, which produces electric power from its wind, natural gas and coal generating plants and sells the electric capacity and energy primarily to its utilities under long-term contracts; and Mining, which produces coal at its mine near Gillette, WY, and sells the coal primarily under long-term contracts to mine-mouth electric generation facilities. The BKH YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the BKH 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 BKH 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 BKH 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.
