Stock Return Calculator

Savvy investors know that buying stocks on the upside is the way to make money. For lengthy upsides of several months to many years, the total return and annualized returns can be spectacular. That's why people buy stocks. And over 90 percent of upside buy and sell combinations make money for traders and short-term investors. Conversely, for an extended downside price series, most investors and traders lose money because 90 percent or more of the possible trades are unprofitable.

Use the Stock Return Calculator to compute the total return with dividends reinvested, annualized return plus a summary of winning (profitable) and losing (unprofitable) buy and sell combinations for any stock listed on a major U.S. stock exchange and supported by Quandl. The calculator does not include fees, commissions, taxes and capital gains distributions in its return computations.

Enter a valid stock symbol and select the price series and date information. Then click on the Calculate Returns button and the results will be displayed on a new page.
