Return

To bring back. Earnings, yield, and profits, are usually paid in the form of interest, dividends, and capital appreciation, on the original principal, although other perks may be involved.

An investor entrusts someone else with their capital, in hopes of it coming back. In essence you are putting money in their vest pocket (investments), so that assets will come back in your pocket. Assets return money to your pocket. [1] Total return is when 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. [2] The total return includes dividends, capital gains distributions, and the increase in the net asset value of the property. [2]

14c "to come back, act of coming back;" 16c a yield, a profit [3]
