Year to date

Year to date or YTD compares change in a value from the beginning of the current year to the date being discussed. 

Example

If a company’s stock price on January 1 of the current year was Rs 30, and it has moved to Rs 45 today, the stock is said to have given a return of 50 percent YTD [{(45-30)/30}*100].

YTD is a quick reckoner of change, but not always the most efficient.
