| Illumina is engaged in sequencing- and array-based solutions for genetic and genomic analysis. Co.'s products and services enable the adoption of genomic solutions in research and clinical settings. Co.'s principal products, services, and technologies are: sequencing, which includes Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) sequencing, a process of determining the order of nucleotide bases (A, C, G, or T) in a DNA sample; arrays, which are used for a range of DNA and RNA analysis applications; consumables, which Co. has developed various library preparation and sequencing kits; and services, which provides whole-genome sequencing, genotyping, noninvasive prenatal testing, and product support services. The ILMN YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the ILMN 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 ILMN 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 ILMN 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.
