Gain/loss is calculated by comparing market value (end of most recent month) with book value (which varies according to buy date).
For U.S. companies, figures are converted into Canadian dollars at exchange rates that vary based on the date of purchase.
Because of this, the gain/loss percentage is a calculation that factors in foreign-exchange changes in addition to movement in the share price.
