What does YTD stand for?


YTD stands for "year-to-date." Businesses and investors use this acronym when discussing a business's performance from the beginning of the year to today.

Most often, businesses use YTD when discussing their finances. For example, your boss might say "our YTD profits are up 32% over last year." (Which is really good; you must be working hard.) However, you may also see YTD used in discussions of sales, production, stock prices, or progress on one or more projects.
