: : Hi Mark,
: : I'm using the latest beta version of FM-Pro and I'm not sure if this is a problem or I'm just misinterpreting what I see. With the yield set to re-invested dividends, if I look at the NAV+DIV graph, the yield listed above the graph matches the yield listed with the trendline, ie. 33.03% and 33.03%. When I change to the Value graph the yield listed above the graph is still 33.03% however, the trendline not indicates 61.47%.
: : Thanks,
: Hi Ray,
: The equation for trendline yield is:
: End_Value = Start_value * (1 + i)^term
: where 'term' is the # of years from start to end, and 'i' is the yield.
I realize the yeild for the trendline reflects the yield of the line being drawn. However, I would have thought that if the trendline was drawn from the same start and end points as the graph and the same value as the start and end of the graph, the yield would match the "gph" yield listed above the graph.
