Hi Mike, and thanks. So you're saying the two terms are synonyms. That's what I thought until I attempted to replicate the analyst's math. I couldn't make my math match his, so I assumed I must be misunderstanding what he wrote. Here's a quote: "The company's shares have climbed nearly 8 percent since the beginning of the year. The stock has fallen roughly 2 percent in the last 12 months." https://finance.yahoo.com/news/lexington-realty-reports-3q-r.......That means the price of a share of stock in Lexington Realty is 2% lower than it was 12 months ago, but 8% higher than it was on Jan 1. Right? I would agree that the price is up ~ 8% since Jan 1. But when I looked at the historical chart, I don't see a 2% drop from a year ago. That's what confused me. I was trying to make the terminology more complicated than it really is because I couldn't make the analyst's math work. Thanks for helping me sort that out.
