Is there a standard definition and calculation for "Total Shareholder Return"? Is there a free reporting service that provides the TSR figures using that standard definition? I use Commsec and it only has 'Total Return' listed under the 'Financials' tab. For BKI it shows a Total Return of -1.6% (for June 2018) whilst looking at the BKI annual report for the same period it shows TSR as 0.1% but mentions that it TSR calculations includes franking credits. When considering an investment, should you only look at the latest figure for TSR or should you look at the 5 or 10 year figure? Therefore a query as to whether both use the same data in their calcuations? Also, does the price or prices paid for the share change in any way the calculation for TSR?
