There's no real definition for "bagger" other than indicating a performance achievement for the investment. So it doesn't really matter so much how you calculate it other than that you use the same method consistently throughout your portfolio. For example, since I track my investments in Quicken, I just take however Quicken calculates the return and divide by the number of years since the first lot was purchased. Is that correct? I don't know. But I do that for every investment.

Who notes there's also a made-up term called a "Spiffy Pop" which represents any time a stock price increases more in a single day than the original cost basis...
