: This is a query re portfolio reporting.

: Pre-purchase, I am tracking a number of investments in a portfolio. If I generate an 'Investment Performance' report, I get output like:

: BegNAV EndNAV Gain %Gain-F Yield
: Investment A 100 110 10 10 50
: Investment B 200 240 40 20 90
: Average 15 70

: where Average shows an arithmetic mean of the %Gain-F column and an arithmetic mean of the Yield column).

: Instead of this arithmetic 'average' figure which is of limited interest, what I would like to see listed is the %Gain-F (and yield) for the portfolio _as a whole_, eg for %Gain-F:

: (350 - 300) / 300 = 16.67%

: Is there any way to configure a report to show this information?

: Thanks

Hi Anil,

There is no option currently in the reports section to configure these
totals as you've described. This is something I'll see about
adding for a future release. I can see why you'd like to see this
figure in a report. You can see a value similar to this figure in a graph
now though. The "Portfolio/Investment(s) Overlay / Price + Distributions"
graph type plots the weighted percent gain in the total portfolio. The
weighting is done by value of each investment and not share price though,
as you've requested above.
