| Westport Fuel Systems is engaged in developing technology to enable more environmentally sustainable engines without compromising the performance, fuel economy, durability, and reliability of diesel engines. The substitution of natural gas for petroleum-based fuel drives a significant reduction in harmful combustion emissions, such as nitrogen oxides, particulate matter, and greenhouse gas, in addition to providing an abundant, relatively inexpensive alternative fuel. Co.'s systems can be used to enable combustion engines to use gaseous fuels, such as natural gas, propane, or hydrogen. The WPRT YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the WPRT 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 WPRT 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 WPRT 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.
