P&L+Div is overstated in portfolio

I have used the Scrip function to add new units bought with the re-invested dividends.

However, in the portfolio summary under header “Div”, i could still see the dividend amount and this is somewhat overstating the P&L.

What should I do to prevent this?


I do not think it is overstated in my opinion because

  1. You did receive the dividends.

  2. Whether you used that dividends to buy stocks or not should not affect P&L + Div for that stock.
    (Note: This is provided that you are not stating that you are paying 0 dollar for the scrip shares)


Got it. Thanks Evan!
