| Vishay Intertechnology is a manufacturer and supplier of discrete semiconductors and passive components. Co.'s semiconductor products include metal oxide semiconductor field-effect transistors, diodes, and optoelectronic components. Semiconductors are used to perform functions such as switching, amplifying, rectifying, routing, or transmitting electrical signals, power conversion, and power management. Co.'s passive components include resistors, inductors, and capacitors. Co.'s passive components are used to suppress voltage increases, store and discharge energy, control alternating current and voltage, filter out unwanted electrical signals, and perform other functions. The VSH YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the VSH 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 VSH 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 VSH 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.
