total return index

Definition

An index that calculates the performance of a group of stocks assuming that all dividends and distributions are reinvested. Examples include the S&P 500, the Russell 2000, and the Wilshire 5000. This method is usually considered a more accurate measure of actual performance than if dividends and distributions were ignored.
