Total return = the capital appreciation (depreciation) and dividends/interest. The formula becomes more complex if the dividends are reinvested in the security being analyzed as then the timing of dividend payments and intermediate prices become relevant.
The formula :
Return =(Ending value of asset + Ending value of the issued and invested dividends/interest) / Beginning value.
To annualize = Return^(1/years)
