I’m Pat Rosenheim, a.k.a. the PandA Trader.
NOTE: This post might be graphic-intensive, so might take a while to load on a mobile device.
I decided to start using the TDM software again. I downloaded it from http://www.thomasdividendmanager.com/index.php/download-tdm and I was good to go!
You will recall in my previous posts about this software, that I input every transaction in our Fidelity accounts, but not in our Capital One accounts. The reason for that is because I’m basically lazy. You see, most of the Fidelity accounts were recently reset to hold mostly DTC discount eligible holdings, and since the rest of our holdings were transferred to Capital One Investing and I had held them and had been adding to them for a while I decided to just take the aggregate holdings (share counts and costs) instead of recording each transaction. This resulted in the Fidelity accounts being almost immediately up to date as far as dividends earned but not yet received, but the Capital One Investing accounts would lag until the ex-dividend had passed before the TDM program would begin to automatically calculate the dividend amount(s) earned.
I also set up the Fidelity accounts (and the joint taxable account held at Capital One Investing) to DRIP the dividends since there was a possibility I would be getting a discount (only at Fidelity). I love discounts! I love dividends! Discounted dividend stock sent me into a slight euphoria!
So, first I looked at the accounts;
This window pops up if you have more than one account and click the account name in the lower left corner. You can also set the location for the program data here.
For this post, I am going to look at the portfolio view(s) or each account, and we’ll take it from the top, so first on the list is Fidelity Roth-A and then we’ll continue down the list one by one.
Ready? Here we go…
