One Year Return is the annualized return generated from holding a security for exactly 12 months. The measure is considered to be good short-term measures of fund performance.

From a technical analysis stand point, you can look at the return of the chart and see where price currently is to the previous ears one year return. If the stock usually returns for example five percent, and right now it is currently on track to return two percent, that could indicate that the stock has higher to climb. It is important to use fundamental and technical analysis together as they will help to round your opinion.

As simple as it sounds, a one year return is nothing more than the annualized return of a equity over a one year period. When using a one year return, there are many ways to implement it in your investing strategy. If you have multiple equities that cover the specific time period, using the one year return can help you to narrow your search.

Closer Look at One Year Return

Some things to keep in mind that a one year return may not be indicative of the future returns, as one year may not be enough time to capture all of the potential cyclical data points that can influence return. If you are looking long term, it would be a better idea to look at a three year or five year return, as that can pick up more influential data points. Again, be sure to ensure the returns are in line and not an outlier compared to similar products.
