Return (%) YTD not updating for some investments.

In Portfolio view, some Return (%) YTD are not updating. Per Quicken online help, " Return (%) YTD is based on downloaded data." This column for MOST of my holdings IS correct by comparing with Morningstar and my own calculations. The Return YTD column (actual $) IS correct for the ones not updating.

Of 22 investments, two mutual funds are reading N/A, and my only two individual stocks have wildly wrong values (negative values as if those values are from the big market dip this spring). I believe this has been the case for a while for these four.

Prices for all holdings are updating correctly.

None of my accounts are linked to online providers. I enter everything manually.

Anyone see this behavior?

    This data is indeed downloaded and has been out of date in the past. If you are willing to share the tickers for the affected stocks we can try them.

    For Return (%) YTD, VTSAX and VWENX are listed as "N/A". TFC and VZ have wrong values (guessing these are long past value). Also, oddly, the return values for TFC (-30.2202%) and VZ (-0.8225%) are to 4 decimal places, whereas all the other returns are to 2 places.

    I have set up a savings account but every time a transfer money in it impacts the annualized return (100% +). I have other accounts I set up in the past and transferring in money does not impact annualized return (which it shouldn't). Any thoughts on what could be wrong? Thanks

    Your problem sounds different from the one being discussed here, which is problems with the Return(%) YTD column in the Investing Portfolio views.

    If your problem is different, please start a new discussion on that topic. Be sure to make clear:
    -- Is this an investing account, or a savings account where you have set the Account Intent to Investing?

    -- What is the exact name of the column in the Investing Portfolio view that has the incorrect data?

    I'm having a problem similar to what Jeff is describing. My problem is in Portfolio View, I'm getting a Return (%) YTD for all my Mutual Funds, and they are correct. However, I'm not getting any Return (%) YTD for any of my ETF's or stocks. I'm getting a dollar amount for them, but no % YTD amount.

    As previously mentioned, Return (%) YTD is not calculated from your own data; it is downloaded. I don't see it for any of my ETFs, either. I do see it for my one stock, BRK.B. So you get whatever some server is providing. Quicken Help says:
    Note that Return (%) YTD is based on downloaded data and is not affected by changes in the As of date option.
