| Walt Disney is an entertainment company. Co. has four businesses segments: Media Networks, which includes cable and broadcast television networks, television production and distribution operations, domestic television stations and radio networks and stations; Parks and Resorts, which owns and operates the Walt Disney World Resort, Disney Resort and Spa and among others; Studio Entertainment, which produces and acquires live-action and animated motion pictures, musical recordings and live stage plays; and Consumer Products and Interactive Media, which licenses Co.'s trade names, characters and visual and literary properties to various manufacturers, game developers, publishers and retailers. The Walt Disney YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the Walt Disney 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 Walt Disney 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 DIS 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.
