The COST stock yearly return is shown above.

The yearly return on the COST stock yearly return page and across the coverage universe of our site, is a measure of the annual return over the calendar year 2012 for the given stock. When performing this calculation it is important to factor in dividends, because a financial instrument's annual return is more than just the change in price if that instrument pays a dividend or coupon.

One way to factor dividends into the return is simply to count them as cash — we don't do that here. Instead, our website aims to empower investors by performing the COST annual return calculation with any dividends reinvested as applicable (on ex-dates).
