Viacom provides entertainment through television, film, digital media, live events, merchandise and solutions. Co. operates through two segments: Media Networks, which provides entertainment content, services and related branded products for consumers in targeted demographics attractive to advertisers, content distributors and retailers through its media brands including Nickelodeon, MTV, BET, Comedy Central and Paramount Network; and Filmed Entertainment, which develops, produces, finances, acquires and distributes films, television programming and other entertainment content through its Paramount Pictures, Paramount Players, Paramount Animation and Paramount Television divisions. The Viacom YTD return is shown above.

The YTD Return on the Viacom 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 Viacom 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 VIAB 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.
