LSE Portfolio

(Mark L) #1

Hey

I tried using the LSE portfolio but am getting stuck!

Yesterday I purchased 5 Persimmon shares for £22.1992 (The number on the Freetrade app). But when i enter this into my portfolio is shows my original cost is only 1.11 and my current gain is 9,733.69%!

How should i enter the purchase price into the portfolio?

Sorry I havent used it in years so I’m unsure what the problem would be. But can I suggest that you simply switch to Yahoo Finance? It’s a much easier interface to use.

Could this be due to Freetrade pricing shares in pounds rather than pence maybe?

I have tried all sorts of figures and cannot match it.

@christopher is right. The price on the portfolio will probably need to be GBX (pence) and not GBP (pounds) so try entering 2219.92

I just signed up to Yahoo to try out Yahoo Finance.

I cannot work out the stats. With LSE it shows me What the original cost was, what the current value is and the total gain/loss/

With Yahoo, it is showing me a total change of +291,542.86%?
The Book value is 2.88

Confused, think i will stick to LSE.
