When entering dividends or trust distributions, you can automatically or manually associate them with trades This allows Stock Portfolio Organizer to calculate some very useful metrics that you won’t find in other portfolio managers The following are just some of the useful metrics that Stock Portfolio Organizer can calculate with this information:
In the dividends and trust distributions panels found in the summary view, you can find out the average yield on cost This figure shows the dividend or trust distribution yield of the original investment If the number of shares owned by the investor does not change, the yield on cost will increase if the company increases the dividend it pays to shareholders; otherwise yield on cost will remain constant
In the dividends and trust distribution grid views you can see the average yield on cost of an individual dividend or trust distribution For example, you purchased a stock many years ago for $30 and received a dividend of $0 89 per share then your average yield on cost would be 2 96%
In the trade detail panel, which can be found in any of the trade views, you can see the yield on cost of all income by year
Another couple of examples of useful metrics is the total net income amount and profit/loss with income, both of which can be found in the trade details panel These figures tell us how much income (dividends and trust distributions) the trade has earned and what our profit/loss is with any income included in the calculation Most portfolio management software will only report the simple return, which does not give you the true picture of how your investments are actually performing
