**How to use our Stock Share Percentage Portfolio Calculator**

## Step #1 Pick your total investment amount

In order to use our calculator, you must have a total investment amount you are willing to spend on the stock(s) that you will invest in. This is based on USD so if you need to use a currency converter simply google search currency converter or go here to this converter.

So, in this case, we are willing to invest $500.

## Step #2 Choose your stock(s)

Now you need to choose the stocks you want to invest in. So, using Apple Inc. as an example, you will search "apple" and click "add stock" to add this to your calculator. If you wish to select more than one stock then go ahead and type in the name and add this stock. You can add as many as you want!

## Step #3 Select the percentage you are willing to allocate based on your total investment amount

Now you need to divide up the percentages for each of the stocks that you chose. If you only have one stock then in the percentage tab you can go anywhere from 1-100 percent. **Please note that you cannot go over 100 percent.

If you selected multiple stocks then please allocate how much percentage you want to invest for each stock.

For example. Say I wanted to invest in **25% Apple, 25% in the Boeing company, and 50% Barrick Gold Corporation** to equal out to **100% of my total investment amount** I would simply type in those percentages for the corresponding stock.

***Please note that you cannot go over 100 percent. It must equal out to a minimum of 1 percent and a maximum of 100 percent.*

Now simply click on **"Calculate"** and this will then calculate the dollar total and shares needed

That is it! You see in the image that we now will invest $125 in AAPL, $250 in ABX, and $125 in BA. You also can see the exact amount of share needed with each stock.
