Fletch52: "I have a question that I have not seen answered on these boards previously and as 2004 has just ended I think it is timely.For those who contribute to their investments monthly and maybe with a lump sum tossed in here and there, can your investment broker provide you with an annualized rate of return?"Just do what the Beardstown Ladies did; ignore ongoing contributions and calculate annual gain by using year-end balances. You too might get a book published and make some more money.Regards, JAFO(to do the calculation properly, you need to calculate for each period between contributions, and then annualize to a CAGR; if ammounts and periods are irregular, then the math gets to be a PITA)
