Could some kind soul, who is genius/part-genius at solving puzzles help me out on this. I'm trying to add a stock I purchased to my Portfolio. I tried to get help from My Portfolio board, but I think it died. But not yet interred.

When I click on "add a stock" on the portfolio screen, I get a screen with a blank slot where I enter the stock symbol. The stocks listed below in the portfolio all have a plus sign beside them indicating I am long. Then, when I click "Update" to add the stock, I get a screen where all the stocks in the port folio have a warning symbol beside them indicating negative shares. At the bottom the symbol has an explanation that one or more of the entries are invalid, and that the process can't be finished until the invalid entries are made valid.

Is it I? Or is it the portfolio? I've tried to do this for so long, I've forgotten the date I bought the stock. Seriously, I could do without the portfolio-I have a correct one in my brokerage account, but it is convenient, when I'm logged onto TMF, to see the stock prices
