Appreciation

As Investors use the term, appreciation is the increase of the value, or market price, of a principal asset of an investment. [1][2][3][1]

Appreciation for this purpose includes not only reported dividends but increases in share values, since such capital appreciation represents accessible cash to the shareholders because they can liquidate their holdings at any moment in time. [2]

Appreciation includes total return. The change in value of an investment over a given period, assuming reinvestment of any dividends and capital gain distributions, expressed as a percentage of the initial investment. [4] Capital appreciation includes dividends, capital gains distributions, and the increase in the net asset value of the property. [3]

From sense of "rise in value" from c.1790. Principalis "first in importance,".."money on which interest is paid;" [5]
