| BP Midstream Partners owns, operates, develops and acquires pipelines and other midstream assets. Co.'s assets consist of interests in entities that own crude oil, natural gas, refined products and diluent pipelines and refined product terminals serving as primary infrastructure for BP p.l.c. (BP) and other customers to transport onshore crude oil production to BP's Whiting Refinery and offshore crude oil and natural gas production to primary refining markets and trading and distribution hubs. Certain of Co.'s assets deliver refined products and diluent from the Whiting Refinery and other U.S. supply hubs to main demand centers. The BPMP YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the BPMP 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 BPMP 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 BPMP 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.
