| Global Water Resources is a water resource management company that owns, operates, and manages water, wastewater, and recycled water utilities in communities, principally in metropolitan Phoenix, AZ. Co. treats water to potable standards and also treats, cleans, and recycles wastewater for a variety of non-potable uses. Co.'s utilities employ groundwater systems for potable water production. Water is brought to the surface from underground aquifers, disinfected and stored in tanks for distribution to customers. Recycled water is created by taking wastewater and applying tertiary treatment (such as screening and filtration and disinfection processes) to create a non-potable water source. The GWRS YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the GWRS 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 GWRS 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 GWRS 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.
