| Wabtec primarily serves the global freight rail and passenger transit industries. Co. provides its products and services through two segments: Freight, which primarily manufactures and provides aftermarket parts and services for new locomotives; provides components for new and existing locomotives and freight cars; builds new commuter locomotives; and supplies rail control and infrastructure products, among others: and Transit, which primarily manufactures and services components for new and existing passenger transit vehicles, mainly regional trains, high speed trains, subway cars, light-rail vehicles and buses; and supplies rail control and infrastructure products, among others. The WAB YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the WAB 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 WAB 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 WAB 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.
