Return calculation 2018

Notes on the calculation:

  • The return of TransparentShare is compared with the development of the DAX. It is based on the DAX index without dividend payments (DE0008467440). This ensures better comparability.

  • The return is calculated per year. A stock is bought when TransparentShare recommends it to be bought and sold when a sell recommendation is made.

  • At the beginning of the year, the amount is made available that allows all purchases in the year to be shown.

  • Basically, a maximum amount of 2000 euros is invested in the purchase of a stock position.

  • If a share was not yet recommended to sell at the turn of the year, the current price at the end of the year is used to calculate the return. In the following year, the year-end price is used as the price of the share at the beginning of the year. (*)

  • We include fees of 9.99 euros per purchase or sale. Tax costs are not taken into account.

  • The calculation looks at the past. An ideal case is simulated in order to map all purchases and sales and to enable comparability with the DAX.
