Tracking Dividend and Fixed Income Investments

StockMarketEye supports a large number of investment metrics to help you track the dividends and income generated by your portfolio.
The following dividend and income columns can be added to the Prices or Fundamentals view of your portfolio. 
  • Dividend - Trailing 12-month (TTM) dividend per share.
  • Yield - Trailing 12-month (TTM) dividend yield. The value of this column in the portfolio's Total line is calculated from the sum of the "DivVal" values and the current Market Value (including cash).
  • FwdDiv - Forward 12-month dividend per share, computed from the last known dividend payment. 
  • FwdYield - Forward 12-month dividend yield, computed from the last known dividend payment. The value of this column in the portfolio's Total line is calculated from the sum of the "FwdDivVal" values and the current Market Value (including cash).
  • BuyValYield - The dividend yield on purchase value of the item, computed as ((Annual Dividend Value/Buy Val)*100).
  • YOC - Yield On Cost for this holding, computed as (Annual Dividend Value / CostBasis) * 100.
  • DivPay Date - Dividend pay date (Yahoo Finance ticker symbols only).
  • ExDiv Date - Ex-dividend date (Yahoo Finance ticker symbols only).
  • DivVal - The yearly value of the current TTM dividend (Dividend * number of shares).
  • DivVal% - The yearly value of the current TTM dividend as a percentage of the portfolio's total yearly TTM dividend value.
  • FwdDivVal - The yearly value of the forward dividend (FwdDiv * number of shares).
  • FwdDivVal% - The yearly value of the forward dividend as a percentage of the portfolio's total yearly forward dividend value.
  • YTD Income - The total value of dividends, capital gains and interest paid by this lot in the year-to-date as recorded in the transactions, including re-invested amounts. The Total's value for this column is a sum of the current individual investments only - it does not include interest paid on the Cash balance of the portfolio (such as through "Interest" cash transactions).
  • 1Y Income - The total value of dividends, capital gains and interest paid by this lot in the last 12 months as recorded in the transactions, including re-invested amounts. The Total's value for this column is a sum of the current individual investments only - it does not include interest paid on the Cash balance of the portfolio (such as through "Interest" cash transactions).
  • Total Income - The total value of dividends, capital gains and interest paid by this lot since purchase as recorded in the transactions, including re-invested amounts. The Total's value for this column is a sum of the current individual investments only - it does not include interest paid on the Cash balance of the portfolio (such as through "Interest" cash transactions).
Note that values for theses columns may not be available for all securities. Columns such as Dividend and FwdDividend are downloaded directly from the data provider. Columns such as YTD Income are calculated purely from the transactions recorded in the portfolio's Transactions report. Other columns, such as BuyValYield and DivVal are calculated from the security's dividend data and your current investments.

Transactions Report

The portfolio's Transactions report can also be useful for valuing your dividend and income investments. By filtering for just dividends and other income transactions, then adding the Totals line, you can get totals for dividends paid over any time frame. Please see our documentation on using the Transactions report for more details on filtering and the totals.
