| Peabody Energy is a producer of metallurgical and thermal coal. In addition to its mining operations, Co. markets and brokers coal from other coal producers, both as principal and agent, and trades coal and freight-related contracts. Co. operates primarily through the following reportable segments: Seaborne Thermal Mining, which consists of mines in New South Wales, Australia; Seaborne Metallurgical Mining, which consists of mines in Queensland, Australia, New South Wales, Australia and Alabama; Powder River Basin Mining, which consists of its mines in Wyoming; and Other U.S. Thermal Mining, which reflects the aggregation of its Illinois, Indiana, New Mexico and Colorado mining operations. The BTU YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the BTU 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 BTU 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 BTU 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.
