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!

SGXcafe Needs You!
About four months have passed since the major crisis faced by SGXcafe. At that time, SGXcafe had to choose between paying tens of thousands in licensing fees yearly to continue running, or face closing down. I have chosen the former, which is why SGXcafe is still operating today. Although it put a huge dent in my savings, I do not regret my decision, because in the last four months, the number of SGXcafe ...

Important Changes to StocksCafe for 2018!
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. ...

Help Shape SGXcafe's Future
Note: There is a one-question survey at the end of the post, and your input is appreciated. Today, I am writing because SGXcafe has reached a crossroad. You might know that SGXcafe started out as a personal project, but I made it available for public use when I thought it might help other small retail investors like myself invest better. However, SGX recently contacted me and said that SGXcafe needs ...
