| CTS designs, manufactures, and sells a line of sensors, electronic components, and actuators primarily to original equipment manufacturers. Co.'s products perform specific electronic functions for a given product family and are designed for use in customer assemblies. Co.'s primary products consist principally of sensors and actuators used in passenger or commercial vehicles, electronic components used in telecommunications infrastructure, information technology and other applications, switches, and potentiometers supplied to various markets, and fabricated piezoelectric materials and substrates used in medical, industrial, aerospace and defense, and information technology markets. The CTS YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the CTS 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 CTS 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 CTS 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.
