| MGE Energy is a public utility holding company. Operating through its subsidiaries, Co. has five business segments: regulated electric utility operations, which generates, purchases, and distributes electricity through its subsidiary, Madison Gas and Electric Company (MGE); regulated gas utility operations, which purchases and distributes natural gas through MGE; nonregulated energy operation, which owns and leases electric generating capacity that assists MGE through Co.'s wholly owned subsidiaries MGE Power Elm Road, LLC and MGE Power West Campus, LLC; and transmission investments, which represents Co.'s investment in American Transmission Company LLC and ATC Holdco, LLC. The MGEE YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the MGEE 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 MGEE 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 MGEE 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.
