Have you ever wanted to know how much you’ve actually gained from your stock investments including all purchases, sales, dividends, and commissions? Did you want to calculate annualized rate of return of your investments?

Or perhaps you wanted to find out if you'd be better off keeping your money in the bank rather than investing it?

Or maybe you are a glass-half-full type of person and you feel that despite declines in your stocks or mutual funds you are actually in the green thanks to dividends, but you are not sure?

Or what if you've made a lot of small transactions and wonder if commissions are dragging your gains into the red?

Total Return is designed to answer these questions. Not only it answers the question that most other portfolio managers do - what the current value of your holdings is, but it also calculates your total return - your investment bottom line by adding both realized and unrealized gains and losses, adding dividends, and subtracting commissions. On top of that you will find out your annualized rate of return (Compound Annual Growth Rate - CAGR) for each position, portfolio, and overall. You will know exactly how big your investment return is, how much it changed today, and, of course, the current value of your holdings every time you launch the app. No longer you will wonder if investing was worth it. You will know it.

Decide for yourself whether to continue guessing or start knowing. Next time someone asks you how well your investments are doing you will be able to answer that question down to the dollar! Or compare your annualized rate of return to find out who made better investment choices.

Take a bit of time to enter your investment transactions and find out how you’ve done over the years. And with the help of automated quote updates, you'll continue tracking your investment bottom line as often as you'd like. Just fire up the app, see it update the quotes, and know your Total Return.

Take the guessing out of your investment bottom line!

Very Flexible

It takes a bit of time to setup, but great for tracking stocks you want to see on the fly. Been using for multiple years. Don't have to worry about signing on in public. Doesn't auto update dividends, but I manually input at beginning of year so I can tract performance of the year only. Would be 5 stars if I could just upload. Thumb print access would be OUTSTANDING future feature (hint hint).

Great little free app for following money weighted returns

I’ve been using this app for 6 or 7 years now and enter all my trades into it. Wanted something that could track my money-weighted rate of return (I.e. annualized IRR). This app does just that, taking into account dividends and fees along the way. The export feature is also great, which allows me to easily import into other programs that can track IRR for any given period (you need all historical stock prices for that, which is beyond the capabilities of any app I’m aware of).

Love this app

You can distribute your holdings between multiple portfolios. I use type of investment( us stocks, international stocks, bonds, etc.) It does require some time each month entering new positions, closed positions, dividends, cash, etc. But it works and can keep track of total return for individual assets and portfolios.
Love this app.
