Q&A: What is return?

Return is the percentage or amount of money that is earned from a particular investment.

Real-life application: The S&P 500 had a return of 28.9% in 2019, meaning if someone invested $1,000 in it at the beginning of the year, then at the end of the year, they would have $1,289. Their return in dollar terms would have been $289.
