| Cytokinetics is a late-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering, developing and commercializing muscle activators and muscle inhibitors as treatments for debilitating diseases in which muscle performance is compromised and/or declining. Co.'s clinical-stage drug candidates are: omecamtiv mecarbil, a cardiac myosin activator for the treatment of heart failure, AMG 594, a cardiac troponin activator, reldesemtiv, a skeletal muscle troponin activator for the treatments of spinal muscular atrophy and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and CK-3773274, a cardiac myosin inhibitor which is designed to reduce the hypercontractility that is associated with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. The CYTK YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the CYTK 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 CYTK 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 CYTK 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.
