Ten Year Return shows the total annualized return generated from holding a fund for the last 10 years and represents fund's capital appreciation, including dividends losses and capital gains distributions. This return indicator is considered by many investors to be the ultimate measures of fund performance and can reflect the overall performance of market or market segment it invests in.

Ten Year Return In A Nutshell

The ten year return should be used for mutual funds and equities you plan on holding for a very long time and will also purchase more during the life of your investing goals. For example, you may want to look at the ten year return of a mutual fund to understand if you will make money over the long haul. Of course past performance does not guarantee future profits, but it will give you a decent indication.

Just as the title states, this will cover the ten year return. The ten year return is for the extremely long term investor, giving you a look at the returns that would likely include a full business cycle and many of the seasonality’s of the equity you are researching. However, do not get caught up in the finer details as many, if not all, markets will fall at some point.

Closer Look at Ten Year Return

Here are a few of the good items with a ten year return analysis. First, the ten years will give you a real look at how the company does during a business cycle. Ten years should be long enough to cover a business cycle, allowing you to see how the equity performs during certain market conditions. Secondly, you can jump into slightly more detail and see which seasons affect the stock. An example being the retail market and how they usually break into the black during the holiday season or quarter. Lastly, you can get a true sense of how the equity will perform. Over a ten year period, you will likely see many outside market affects and how the equity reacted.

A few negatives to keep in mind are that first; it is not for the short term investor as over a ten year span, a short term investor is not likely to see many of those affects. Yes, it will paint a better picture, but as a short term investor, you would be more interested in the day to day news of performance of the stock and company. Secondly, it could have a negative impact on your research because not many people hold an equity for ten plus years. To hold something that long, you have to have faith that the company or performance will sustain. Obviously an S&P tracking mutual funds will always perform, but speaking in terms of a company or ETF, it may not do well for ten plus years.

Find the right time frame that fits your investing and trading style and find a way to utilize that. Not all times frame are going to give you what you need, but it certainly won’t hurt to try.
