Dear Friends,

I own Fidelity Capital Appreciation (FDCAX), and they recently paid a big distribution. My problem is, how do insert this transaction in my Portfolio (I manage my portfolio at If I'll put in a share price (the share price of the day they reinvested the money), it will seem like I invested more money, and therefore eating into my profit (actually, even prior to putting in the above info, my profit has eroded, right after the distribution occurred). If I'll insert 0.00001 as my share-price, true that I will have my profit returned, but no information will be existing or available as to what price the new shares were bought, and as a result even if the Mutual Fund price would plunge it will never be able to determine a loss on these shares.
