Subscribe to RSS feed Annualized Dividends and P&L For Your Portfolio

Many features that you see in SGXcafe are requests made by users. I appreciate feedback and feature requests from users, and do my best to make it happen whenever possible. Therefore, if there is any feature that you wish to see in SGXcafe, feel free to let me know!

This weekend, I spent some time working on adding new columns (e.g. annualized dividends % and annualized P&L %) to current portfolio and closed positions, as requested by users.

The new columns tell you how much dividends and P&L you have made from a particular stock or transaction on an annualized basis. I believe it would be useful in at least two situations:

1) For stocks that you have held for numerous years, you will be able to see the annualized dividends % and annualized P&L % that they are generating for you.

2) Having annualized dividends % and annualized P&L % would also allow you to compare various stocks that you might have held for different amounts of time more fairly.

Some users might be overwhelmed by the increasing number of columns in the current portfolio. Please remember that you can always easily personalize the columns displayed here.

I would love to hear how this new information helps you in your investment journey.

Happy investing!

First of all, Gong Xi Fa Cai! As I am currently in Japan, I've got nowhere to go "bai nian". In combination with my wife not feeling so well, I've got on my hands an entire weekend to work on SGXcafe. One thing that is starting to irritate me is that as SGXcafe continues to add more features, I would have to make numerous clicks just to access a particular feature. This problem is amplified when I ...

Analyze and Compare Stocks (using SGXcafe)
Analyze Every investor has his/her favorite set of metrics that they look at when performing stock analysis and valuation. Therefore, it is difficult to decide which metric to display in SGXcafe, hence most of the time, I simply choose to display information that I am personally interested in. But I want to make SGXcafe more customizable so that it can provide better value to everyone. Incidentally, ...

The True Cost of Being Free
SGXcafe was originally built to help manage my own portfolio. I decided to share it freely when I realized it might be useful to many other retail investors like myself who do not have access to proper portfolio management tools. However, I was soon notified by SGX that SGXcafe requires appropriate licensing to continue operating publicly. At that time, under the encouragement of many users, I decided ...
