( (Stock A ending price x # of shares) + ( Stock B ending price x # of shares))/ (( Stock price A beginning price x # of shares)+( Stock B beginning price x # of shares))
You don't add returns together.

Newbie here trying to make some sense of it...
If i buy one stock at $10.00 and sell it at $11.00, thats a 10% increase, yes?
If i but another stock $10.00 and sell it at $12.00 thats a 20% increase, yes?
So together is that a 30% increase in value?
is that the same as saying, i made a 30% return on the initial investment?
Thanks for the help.
