Use this stock market calculator to determine your investment returns based on purchase price, current price, and the number of shares. For a more detailed analysis, consider the advanced calculation to evaluate annualized returns over a given investment period.

## Stock Market Calculation Formula

The following formulas are used for stock market calculations:

Return on Investment (ROI) = (Current Price - Purchase Price) * Number of Shares

Annualized ROI (%) = ((Current Value / Initial Investment) ^ (1 / Investment Period) - 1) * 100

Variables:

- Return on Investment (ROI) is the net gain or loss from the investment in dollars ($)
- Current Price is the price at which the stock is currently trading ($)
- Purchase Price is the price at which the stock was initially purchased ($)
- Number of Shares is the total amount of stock held
- Initial Investment is the amount of money originally invested ($)
- Current Value is the total value of the investment at present ($)
- Investment Period is the duration of the investment in years
- Annualized ROI is the yearly return rate on the investment (%)

To determine the ROI, subtract the purchase price from the current price and multiply by the number of shares. For annualized ROI, adjust the current value and initial investment to reflect the investment period.
