Quicken does not calculate ROI correctly
I don’t think that Quicken Deluxe 2018 R10.11 calculates the ROI
correctly. Let me explain.
I buy a mutual fund for a total of $10,000. Over the course of time it
pays dividends of $2,000. Its current market value is $15,000. I would calculate
the ROI as (15,000-10,000)/10,000 = 50%, but the result given in Investing
>> Portfolio for ROI will be different. Note: Those are made up numbers but give the gist of the problem.
Can anyone explain this?
