StockLight now shows a fully personalised profit and loss analysis of your portfolio. We also added support for multiple watchlists.
Based on user feedback, we introduced an easy way to enter the purchase price and date of your holdings so that StockLight can calculate an estimated return on your investments.
Your holdings screen will also show dividends that were issued and an annualised return based on the holding periods entered for your stocks.
The opportunity cost associated with your holding period is a very important concept when investing and that is why you need to know how your investments are doing on an annualised basis.
Unlike your broker who is typically incentivised to make you trade more often and has no reason to show you an annualised return, StockLight acts in your best interest and won't hide this crucial benchmark from you.
Click here to learn more about your annualised return and why it is important.
For those of us tracking lots of companies, we also made it easy to create multiple watchlists. Just tap 'Edit' next to your list of stocks on the home screen to manage extra watchlists and adjust your holdings.

Following on from the recent release of portfolio tracking, StockLight now also offers server backups of your watchlist and portfolio.
When you update to the latest version of the app, you will now be able to log into your StockLight account on all your devices in the Settings screen of the app. See the 'How do I synchronise my portfolio and watchlist across devices?' question on the website FAQ page for more details.
When logging into multiple devices such as an iPhone and an iPad using the same email account with StockLight, this will ensure that your watchlist and holdings are automatically copied across the devices each time you first open the app.
Note: The email address you enter into iTunes and Google Play when making a 'StockLight Premium' or 'Remove Ads' in-app purchase is not shared with StockLight. In order to have your portfolio backed up by our secure server, you need to enter your email address directly into the app itself either when taking out a 15 day free membership or from the StockLight Settings screen.
