| Host Hotels & Resorts operates as a self-managed and self-administered real estate investment trust, with its operations conducted solely through Host Hotels & Resorts, L.P. Co. has hotels located in the U.S. (various hotels are located in Brazil and Canada). In addition, Co. owns non-controlling interests in various domestic and international joint ventures that primarily own hotels. Co. also owns non-controlling interests in a timeshare joint venture in Hawaii and in a joint venture that owns an asset management business. The HST YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the HST 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 HST 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 HST 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.
