Questions about updating prices or transactions in Fund Manager
6 posts • Page 1 of 1
After importing transactions from TDAmeritrade, I can't seem to get a real price on WFM. It was imported as WFMI. I adjusted by splitting 1 for 1 and changing the symbol to WFM in investment properties, but I still get an interpolated price in my portfolio value report. Please let me know what you suggest I do.
Thanks in advance,
What is the date of your Portfolio Value report? You can look in the Data Register (Edit / All Data...) and select "Prices" for the data type to see all your recorded prices for a given investment.
I just test retrieved WFM from Yahoo, and it updated properly for today's quote. If you are creating a Portfolio Value report for today, and you have a price recorded for today, it shouldn't be shown as being interpolated. If you're not able to get a price updated for today, please check the items listed under this FAQ:

I retrieved prices from Yahoo and the problem fixed itself.
I have the task of bringing the firm to GIPS compliance and was hoping you could suggest a strategy for me to follow...
I have been trying different methods of importing the transaction files from TD Ameritrade, creating a cash account as default and specifying the existing cash account as given by TD.
My main problem is while I can see the cash dividend paid under Data Type:Dividend in the register, they are being treated as contributions.
My nightmare would be to manually enter all these transactions.
Thanks for any guidance,
For a distribution, you should see the dividend in the paying stock/fund under "Distributions (all)" and then a buy of your default cash on the same date for the same amount. At the portfolio level, this will not show up as a contribution since there are matching transactions.
What type of TD Ameritrade file are you importing from? Did you try just using the New Portfolio Wizard and retrieving transactions and positions?
I can't use the portfolio wizard since we don't have the access. I have been importing the TD transactions files.
I have walked thru the different variables regarding creating cash accts and auto recording while importing. Excuse my newbishness since I haven't found the combination that will result in matching transactions (at best I can see daily aggregate totals).
I do see the dividend distributions at the investment level and deleting one of these entries I can see the cash change, but when I run the performance report these dividends appear as contributions.
Is there a post you can point me towards dealing with similar problems for TD Ameritrade?
Much obliged and thx for your patience,
A dividend shouldn't be showing up as a contribution in the Portfolio Performance report for the investment that paid the dividend, or at the portfolio level. If the money was deposited into a default cash account, it will show up as a contribution at the cash account level. The contributions/withdrawals reported are relative to each line in the report, so a dividend deposited into cash is a contribution into the cash investment, but not at the portfolio level. Is this maybe what is causing the confusion? For more, select "Help / Help on Report..." while viewing your Portfolio Performance report. You can read this, and also the "more info" link under the cash flow style header.
