Yield On Average Cost

Questions on using, creating, or understanding data in Fund Manager reports.

Postby AssetHound » Sun Apr 07, 2024 4:15 pm

I want to calculate a yield based on the total distributions received (btw) or the projected annual income, whichever is greater, compared to the average cost of shares still held including reinvestments. This yield should be comparable to the published yield for a security and used for replacement decisions. I usually run this as a YTD report.

I guess I should include both received and reinvestment distributions in the numerator?

I already calculate a yield based on OOP cost.

Having a little trouble. Help?

Hi AssetHound,

Are you trying to write a user-defined custom report field? Can you choose which fields you're trying to utilize and write them into an equation that does what you want?
