In addition to descriptive data, performance of the investment is shown over time. To calculate quarterly performance, we first calculate cost basis of the shares purchased during the quarter, then use that to calculate gross profit. Quarterly return is Gross Profit / Starting Portfolio value.

Note that cost basis is calculated and stored in thousands, so small quarterly changes in shares frequently result in a cost basis of zero.
