How performance is calculated

Vue performance is based on a simulated investment of $1 million in each Vue (portfolio of 10 stocks). When the portfolio is first created, we allocate $100,000 to each stock in the Vue (note that based on the current price of the stock, the simulated investment may be less than $100,000). So for example say stock XYZ was worth $98. We would buy 1020 shares ($100,000/$98). The simulated investment would be: 1020 shares x $98 = $99,960 invested in stock XYZ.

When a stock is removed from the Vue and another one is chosen, we invest the money from a sale into the new stock. For example, if stock XYZ was now worth $100, we would receive 1020*$100 = $102,000. If another stock, called ABC is chosen for the Vue, we invest the $102,000 in the new stock.

If a dividend is received then it is added to the cash holdings in the Vue and not reinvested. Performance on any given date is based on the growth of the initial $1 million to the current sum of stock and total cash holdings.
