Distribution of Stock Returns Calculator
The calculator computes
the individual return for each buy and sell combination and places the return in a preset return category for any stock, exchange-traded fund (ETF) and mutual fund listed on a major U.S. stock exchange and supported by Alpha Vantage. Some stocks traded on non-U.S. exchanges are also supported. Indexes are not supported.
The calculator computes the percent return for each buy and sell combination for the specified time period, places the return in a preset return category, computes the total number of returns in each category and finally computes the percentage of total number of returns for each return category.
The calculator uses monthly closing prices that are adjusted for splits and dividends. If the stock has less than three months of price data, daily prices are used.
Note: If the stock does not have price data for the specified date range, the earliest date of available prices is used for the start month and start year.
