| UnitedHealth Group is a holding company. Through its subsidiaries, Co.'s two business platforms, Optum and UnitedHealthcare, are working to help build a health system through improved access for the individuals and organization it serves. Co.'s segments are: Optum Health, which delivers care, care management, wellness and consumer engagement, and health financial services; Optum Insight, which provides data, analytics, research, consulting, technology and managed services solutions; Optum Rx, which provides pharmacy care services; and UnitedHealthcare, which includes UnitedHealthcare Employer and Individual, UnitedHealthcare Medicare and Retirement and UnitedHealthcare Community and State. The UnitedHealth Group YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the UnitedHealth Group 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 UnitedHealth Group 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 UNH 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.
