| Sunrun is engaged in the design, development, installation, sale, ownership, and maintenance of residential solar energy systems. Co.'s main solar service offerings are provided through its lease and power purchase agreements, which it refers to as its Customer Agreements. While homeowners have the option to purchase a solar energy system outright from Co., a majority of its customers choose to buy solar as a service through its Customer Agreements. With its solar service offerings, Co. installs solar energy systems on its customers' homes and provides them the solar power produced by those systems. In addition, Co. monitors, maintains and insures the system during the term of the contract. The RUN YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the RUN 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 RUN 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 RUN 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.
