| Nielsen Holdings is an information and measurement company that provides clients with an understanding of consumers and consumer behavior. Co. aligns its business into two reporting segments: Buy, which provides retail transactional measurement data, consumer behavior information and analytics primarily to businesses in the consumer packaged goods industry; and Watch, which provides viewership and listening data and analytics primarily to the media and advertising industries across the television, radio, print, online, digital, mobile viewing and listening platforms. The Nielsen Holdings YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the Nielsen Holdings 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 Nielsen Holdings 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 NLSN 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.
