| America's Car-Mart is an automotive retailer in the United States focused on the Integrated Auto Sales and Finance segment of the used car market. Co. primarily sells older model used vehicles and provides financing for substantially all of its customers. Most of Co.'s customers have limited financial resources and would not qualify for conventional financing as a result of limited credit histories or past credit problems. Co. purchases vehicles primarily from wholesalers, new car dealers, individuals and auctions. Co. sells trucks and sport utility vehicles. Co. provides financing to substantially all of its customers who purchase a vehicle at one of its dealerships. The CRMT YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the CRMT 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 CRMT 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 CRMT 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.
