| Spirit Realty Capital is a self-administered and self-managed real estate investment trust with in-house capabilities, including asset management, acquisition, credit, research, finance, information technology and accounting functions. Co. primarily invests in single-tenant real estate throughout the U.S., which is generally acquired through sale-leaseback transactions and subsequently leased on a long-term, triple-net basis to tenants with business operations within predominantly retail, but also office and industrial property types. Co.'s operations are carried out through Spirit Realty, L.P. (Operating Partnership). The SRC YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the SRC 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 SRC 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 SRC 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.
