Do you have a formula I could use to figure total return that accounts for differing weekly contribution amounts? I'm not real good at setting up spreadsheets to do that. Or can I simply average the return %'s shown for each in my quarterly reports?
I'd use a longer period than one quarter. Maybe use the 5-year returns for each of the funds in your portfolio. You can find that on the www.Morningstar.com website
Here's an article on how to calculate the hidden costs for a mutual fund as well as a simple Excel spreadsheet you can download.
