| Karuna Therapeutics is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company that focuses on transformative medicines for people living with psychiatric and neurological conditions. Co.'s proprietary product candidate, KarXT (xanomeline-trospium), an oral modulator of muscarinic receptors that are located both in the central nervous system (CNS) and various peripheral tissues. KarXT combines xanomeline, a muscarinic agonist, with trospium, an approved muscarinic antagonist, to preferentially stimulate muscarinic receptors in the CNS. Co. is developing KarXT for the treatment of psychosis in adults with schizophrenia as well as for the treatment of psychosis in Alzheimer's disease. The KRTX YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the KRTX 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 KRTX 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 KRTX 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.
