FolioCalc 1.1.3 Ranking & Summary
FolioCalc 1.1.3 description
FolioCalc is an investment portfolio tracker and calculator for the Apple Macintosh running Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger).
FolioCalc handles three investment types: stocks, interest-bearing accounts, and cash (treated as a zero-return investment).
It was written from scratch using the latest development technology endorsed by Apple such as Cocoa, CoreData, and bindings.
Track your stock investments in near-realtime.
Many of the calculated stock investment quantities (the ones dependent on current share price) that are displayed in FolioCalc are dynamic. FolioCalc can receive stock share price data from one of two separate web services on a configurable time interval.
This near-realtime price data (20 minute delayed data) is used to automatically adjust the gain and many other calculations.
FolioCalc can fetch share price data automatically for stocks in the NYSE, NASDAQ, and AMEX stock exchanges. Stocks from other exchanges or even fictitious tickers can also be entered with a share price manually.
These user-entered share prices are stored with preferences (you dont have to save the document) and used from then on in the calculations. If the internet is down or realtime data is turned off in FolioCalc, it will use the last stored value of the stock price in preferences also.
Investments are automatically generated from transactions.
This is one of the most powerful features of FolioCalc. Many other stock portfolio trackers require you to enter stock buy and sell transactions with the same lot size, essentially creating an investment record manually. So the entered stock transactions may not correspond to the lot sizes of the actual transactions made with a broker.
For example, you may have bought 50 shares of Intel stock one day and then another 50 shares another day, then say you later sold 25 shares and then sold another 75 shares at a later date. When you enter real-world transactions like these into FolioCalc, it automatically figures out how many separate investment records to make, and when to close certain ones based on the First In First Out (FIFO) strategy.
It also figures out how to properly split the commission and fees between the various investments, if needed. So in this case it would create three closed investments for Intel stock, two for 25 shares, and one for 50 shares. Each of these three investments would have separate capital gains and returns. Some of them might be short-term and some long-term with different tax implications.
For active traders, the real-world scenarios are often much more complex than this example. Figuring out all this manually with a calculator at tax time can be a major pain and most investment software (or web-based tools) out there wont help you with this problem (without paying considerably more and dealing with the complexities and bloat of a general accounting program).
FolioCalc takes the hard work out of filling out Schedule-D.
Since FolioCalc generates all the investment records and calculates capital gains and cost basis needed on the Schedule-D income tax form for each investment as well as the totals, once you have all your transactions entered correctly, all you have to do is simply copy down the required amounts onto the form!
View up to 20 financial quantities for each investment.
The basic quantities you see on most portfolio trackers are there such as cost basis, capital gain, percent return and more. But that is just the beginning. You can view annualized return (aka. CAGR), which can be handy for comparing long term investments on an equal footing.
Want to see approximately what you would be making on a investment after the government takes its cut? You can view post-tax versions of several of the applicable financial quantities. Sold a stock investment in the past and want to know what it would be worth right now if you hadnt sold it? There is a quantity called Unrealized Value that shows you just that. Each investment also contains an editable field for notes and the investment label can also be edited. And the columns can be rearranged or removed completely via preferences to suit your tastes.
Three different views of your portfolio data.
You can separately view all your transactions, investments, or the full list of stocks associated with your stock investments. The stock view shows you at a glance the total shares you still own for each stock along with the last received stock share price.
More than just stock portfolio tracking.
FolioCalc was written since day one with general investments in mind. Interest-bearing savings accounts (like a money market account) and cash accounts are also supported besides just stock investments. Savings account returns are automatically calculated from the interest payment transactions. You can view your savings investments and cash along with your stock investments or separately via a query, its up to you.
Filter subsets of your investments using several built-in queries.
You can filter your investments by any combination of queries for closed date (YTD, last year, custom range), state (open or closed), investment type (stock, cash, savings), and term (short or long). Each query is accessed via a pulldown so you dont have to type anything except for the case of the custom range for the closed date query.
Each query is logically ANDed with the others so many different combinations of queries can be requested. For example, when doing your taxes for last year and you need to list your stock investments for the Schedule-D form you would query on a closed date of last year, a state of closed, type set to stock, and the appropriate term you need for the form.
Then you would see the filtered subset of investments you need along with the cost basis for each investment. Then its just a matter of copying the cost basis and other values needed onto the Schedule-D form.
Investment totals at a glance.
There is a totals row at the bottom of the investment table that includes the totals of the dollar values and also includes other values such as return that are computed directly from the dollar value totals.
When you filter the investment records based on various criteria to display a subset of your investments, the totals row will update to reflect only the records in the filter. Also, the totals row will always be in view at the bottom of the table and will not scroll vertically like the other rows.
Enter transactions directly, or import them.
Stock transactions can be entered directly on the Transactions pane or imported from various file formats downloaded from online brokers such as Ameritrade and Fidelity.
Automatic cash or savings transfers for stock transactions.
Automatic transfers can optionally be made to/from cash or savings accounts when entering stock transactions. This is a handy feature that saves you from having to manually enter a separate cash or savings transaction corresponding to a stock buy or sell.
Stock splits are supported.
You can either manually enter stock splits as stock transactions just like buy or sells or import them automatically from the broker file. FolioCalc automatically adjusts the shares owned in the appropriate investment records without effecting the original buy transaction records. The investment quantities that are dependent on number of shares are automatically adjusted.
Any number of forward or reverse split transactions can be entered and the cumulative number of shares for the effected investments will update to reflect the cumulative combination of splits. Remove a split transaction and the investment quantities go back to what they were before the split since the buy transactions are not effected.
Print your transactions, investments (all or filtered), or stocks.
When you print, the document is printed with the same sorting, active columns, column ordering, and filtering as the currently displayed table.
