Aviva (AV.L) Share Price is 75% Higher Than a Year Ago: Is It Worth Investing Now?

During the last trading session, Aviva shares closed at 403.00 GBP, 0.67% higher than the starting point. In the month of July, stock price indicators worsened. Since this month, there has been an increase in prices, and on August 2, the shares were worth 391.42 GBP. Three days later, the stock jumped to 401.58 GBP.

Aviva’s share price is 75% higher than a year ago, which is much better than the market yield of about 27% over the same period. If it can maintain this performance, in the long run, investors will have good opportunities. On the other hand, long-term shareholders faced tougher conditions when the shares fell by 27% in three years.

Aviva shareholders received a total shareholder return of 89% in one year. Of course, this includes dividends. This is better than the annual return of 4% for half a decade, which means that the company has been doing better recently. At best, this may hint at some real momentum for the business. Now may be a great time to study in more depth and track the dynamics of stock prices in the long term.
