One of the main goals of SGXcafe is providing a portfolio management tool. It is also one of the most popular features in SGXcafe. When I added the ability for one account to have multiple portfolios, it was quickly adopted and used by hundreds of users.

However, at that time, you could not look at individual portfolio for the portfolio reporting tab and a few users requested to have this feature added. I am happy to share that now you will be able to view reports of individual portfolios.

Furthermore, SGXcafe will now display the warnings that occur during the generation of reports. For now, there are two types of warnings:
1) end of day data not found for stocks you entered, as this would adversely affect the computation of portfolio values
2) when you try to sell stocks that you do not own

Hopefully, these additions will make SGXcafe better in helping you manage your portfolio. Do continue to share with me how I can make SGXcafe better for you.

Happy investing!

Close Price vs Last Traded Price
All along, I have naively displayed "Last Traded Price" and used it for all computations in StocksCafe without much consideration. That is until recently, when a user brought to my attention the difference between "Last Traded Price" and "Close Price". This led me to spend time learning about it and ultimately switch to using "Close Price" in StocksCafe instead. Close Price vs Last Traded Price Most ...

How Much is a Stock Worth?
Recently, I read a book, A Random Walk Down Wall Street by Burton G. Malkiel. In the book, he discussed two ways to valuate a stock - The firm-foundation theory and the castle-in-the-air theory. The firm-foundation theory assumes that each stock has a true value which is equal to the present value of all its future dividends. It is likely that you have heard something similar because this approach ...
