Quicken Mac Portfolio View Amount Invested

Still using QM 2007- After selling some shares, but not all, the Portfolio View decreases the Amount Invested & the Cost Basis, which in turn affects the Gain and the Return. These numbers are not making sense to me, I cannot manually confirm the amounts shown in the Portfolio View. Further, this behavior is contrary to what I have read about the behavior in Quicken Windows, which apparently keeps the Amount Invested as the total amount invested, regardless of sales. Which behavior is correct, and most importantly can anyone explain the calculations QM 2007 is using?

    Hey Mike,

    Sorry you're experiencing this trouble.

    What is the name of the security?

    Can you upload an image of what you are seeing?

    Thank you. After many hours, I've solved my problem. I now have the "ROI %" in Portfolio View matching the ROI in the Performance (ROI) Report, and the "Return" in the Portfolio View I have learned is equal to the "Returns" less the "Investments" in the ROI Report. It seems that after you sell all or part of a security, the data in the Portfolio View is not quite so obvious and easy to verify manually, but I'm now satisfied with the results. One of my problems was that I had errantly used "Move Shares" rather than "Sell" in one of my accounts. I changed this and got proper results.

    Hello therbert,

    In Quicken for Mac, there are just a few set reports:

    and also reports that you can personalize:

    Could you explain more about the "performance report?"

    Many thanks in advance.

    "Portfolio View matching the ROI in the Performance (ROI) Report"

    Hey Therbet,

    Mike is talking about a report that is a available in a discontinued version.

    What version are you currently running and is it for Windows or for Mac?
