Update: Silvercrest Asset Management Group (NASDAQ:SAMG) Stock Gained 52% In The Last Year

We believe that investing is wise because history shows that stock markets will rise over the long term. However, if you do choose to buy stocks, some of them are below average. For example, the share price of Silvercrest Asset Management Group Inc. (NASDAQ: SAMG) has risen over the past year, but its 52% gain is below the market return. On the flip side, longer-term shareholders had a tougher run: the stock fell 9.0% in three years.

What about dividends?
In addition to measuring stock price return, investors should also consider total shareholder return (TSR). The TSR is a yield calculation that takes into account the value of cash dividends (assuming a dividend received has been reinvested) and the calculated value of discounted capital increases and carve-outs. The TSR arguably gives a more complete picture of the return generated by a stock. We find that the TSR for Silvercrest Asset Management Group was 59% last year, which is better than the stock price return mentioned above. The dividends paid by the company have thus increased the total return for shareholders.
Another perspective
Silvercrest Asset Management Group's TSR for the year was broadly in line with the market average at 59%. Most would be happy to see a profit, and it helps that the annual return is actually better than the average return over five years, which was 7%. It is possible that management foresight will continue to bring growth in the future, even if the stock price slows. While it is worth considering the varying effects of market conditions on the stock price, other factors are even more important.
