Subscribe to RSS feed More Updates: Dividends Override Bug and More Dividends-Related Improvements

By evankoh posted on 31 Jul 2016  -  15,982 views


Dividends Override was introduced to SGXcafe during the time when one account can hold only one portfolio. Soon after, I introduced the support for Multiple Portfolios in SGXcafe. However, Dividends Override was not updated to support Multiple Portfolios. This mistake potentially caused some mistakes in computing the total dividends you have collected if you happen to hold the same stock in different portfolios.

I have already fixed this bug and each override will be assigned to a specific portfolio from now on. All current Dividends Override have been by default assigned to the "default" portfolio, so if you currently have Dividends Override and do not want it to be assigned to the "default" portfolio, please update them to the correct portfolio here. My apologies for this bug, and please let me know if you need more support regarding this issue. I also appreciate user jonong for alerting me to it.

At the same time, I also took the chance to make several improvements related to Dividends.

1) Now, if you filter by stock in the Dividends Collected tab, you can see a yearly summary of Dividends received for that particular stock.

2) In the Portfolio Report, you can now see the breakdown of the projected dividends.

3) You can now also filter all sub-tabs under Portfolio Dividends by a particular portfolio.

I would like to thank all users for reporting bugs and requesting features. SGXcafe is better because of you :)

Happy investing!

A Course All Investors Should Attend
I have always wanted to attend the Value Investing Mastery Course (or VIMC) by BigFatPurse as I have heard many good things about it. However, as I am working and living in Tokyo, there was no opportunity for me to attend. Luckily for me, they recently released eVIMC, which is the e-learning equivalent of the popular VIMC. Personally, I have always preferred e-learning over physical lectures as it ...

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, ...

Bull or Bear?
"No price is too high for a bull or too low for a bear" - an old Wall Street proverb It is a known fact that investors can be over-optimistic or over-pessimistic at times. When a series of good news happens, investors switch into the optimistic mode, often over-optimistic, and significantly bid up the price of a stock ditching any rational pricing theory whatsoever. Any high price will be justified ...
