| Ferro is a producer of materials that are sold to a range of manufacturers who, in turn, make products for end-use markets. Co.'s products fall into two categories: functional coatings, which perform specific functions in the end products and manufacturing processes of its customers; and color solutions, which provide performance and aesthetic characteristics to its customers' products. Co.'s products include frits, porcelain and other glass enamels, glazes, decorating colors, pigments, inks, polishing materials, dielectrics, electronic glasses, and other coatings. Co.'s products are used as functional or aesthetic coatings for a variety of different substrates on its customers' products. The FOE YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the FOE 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 FOE 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 FOE 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.
