| Aravive is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing treatments designed to halt the progression of diseases, including cancer and fibrosis. Co.'s primary product candidate, batiraxcept, is a decoy protein that targets the GAS6-AXL signaling pathway. By capturing serum GAS6, batiraxcept starves the AXL pathway of its signal, potentially halting the biological programming that promotes disease progression. AXL receptor signaling plays a role in multiple types of malignancies by promoting metastasis, cancer cell survival, resistance to treatments, and immune suppression. The ARAV average annual return since 2014 is shown above.
The Average Annual Return on the ARAV average annual return since 2014 page and across the coverage universe of our site,
is a measure of the annualized return over the past ten years (or specified start date) for a given investment
(up to the end of prior trading session recorded). Arguably, choosing ten years for a measurement
period is on the one hand completely arbitrary, but on the other hand provides a sufficiently long window
to capture long-term trends.
Thus, researching Average Annual Returns is good practice for investors — whether ARAV average annual return since 2014 or other benchmarks/peers
— and when doing so it is also important to factor in dividends, because a financial instrument's annualized 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 ARAV average annual return calculation with any dividends reinvested as applicable (on ex-dates).
