How is my dividend income calculated?
Our app will default to a Trailing 12 Month Yield, but you can switch at anytime by going to Settings within the app to a forward yield calculation.
I'm using the app outside of the US and the app displays you local currency, can I switch it to US currency?
By default, DivCalc will display local currency based off your location, however; you can go into your settings to force US currency. Do this by going to Settings within DivCalc and scroll down until you see: Display US dollars, where you will be taken to your iPhone settings where you can toggle on Display US Dollars.
Can I add fractional shares?
Yes! We integrated the ability to add fractional shares by simply typing in the amount of shares owned in the amount in a decimal format (i.e. 100.3 or 100.8). Please note that if the fractional amount entered is too small to calculate a 0.01 amount change, the amount will not be reflected.
Is paying the $2.99 for premium a one-time fee or a subscription?
