<<When creating an Investment Performance Report in Quicken it tells me my "Average Annual Total Return" is 1663.41%. But I am assuming what that means is if it did that good all year long for a year that's what the return would be. Doesn't Quicken simply tell you what your return would be for that time period? Like the Fools always report in their porfolios every day, what their return was THAT DAY.>>

I have found following my portfolio here at fool.com to be great for that. under long term it also compares your investment to the S&P and on the main portfolio screen gives how they did for the day in percent.

I love it.
