StocksCafe in 2018 - 5 Jan 2018

Happy New Year! Review of 2017 2017 has been an exciting year for StocksCafe. It started with the change of name to StocksCafe, which included the migration of domains as well as architecture change.

And now, ...


Quick Updates: Dividend Withholding Tax and More - 25 Dec 2017

Merry Christmas! I hope you are enjoying yourself this holiday season. Just wanted to quickly share some changes I have made over this weekend: Dividend Withholding Tax As StocksCafe recently started supporting US stocks, some users have requested for StocksCafe to automatically adjust for dividends based on individuals' tax status. For example, most Singapore residents would incur a 30% tax on all ...


Important Changes to StocksCafe for 2018! - 17 Dec 2017

2017 is coming to an end, and I hope this has been a good year for you and your investments. This year, StocksCafe continued to enjoy great support from users. More than 300 users have contributed, either monetarily, reporting errors, or suggesting improvements. Unfortunately, as it is costly to license financial data, StocksCafe will very likely end this year in the red again despite the support. ...

Updates: Day Change and Screener Email - 18 Nov 2017

This is a quick updates of two changes that I thought would be important/useful to communicate to everyone. Day Change Computation Previously, the day change shown on the main page of your personal portfolio was computed naively. It was simply how many shares of a stock you own at the end of the day multiply by the change in price (TodayClose - YesterdayClose). DayChangeForAStockPreviously = SharesYouOwnAtEndOfDay ...

The Story of the Broken Email - "Thanks" to DigitalOcean - 8 Nov 2017 (Updated: 9 Nov 2017)

I would like to apologize for the email outage for the last three days. I have finally fixed the issue. All emails should be operating as usual from now on. Below is the reason why I had to manually activate accounts for new sign ups and why no daily market update emails were sent.

Delisting Dividends - 31 Oct 2017

Recently, several users have independently highlighted to me the issue of delisting dividends. What are delisting dividends? I am referring to dividends that are given when the stock is delisted, redeemed, or cancelled. These dividends usually have a dividend yield of ~100%. However, note that not all dividends with ~100% dividend yield are delisting dividends, for example: 8Telecom's capital reduction ...


Displaying & Collecting Dividends in Exchange's Default Currency - 23 Oct 2017

Many stocks give out dividends and it is what many investors like about investing. Often, dividends are listed in the currency that the stock is traded in. However, there are many exceptions to that, especially for foreign-listed companies. For example, United Overseas Australia Limited is traded in SGD but states its dividends in AUD. In StocksCafe, I wrongly assumed that you would receive the dividends ...
