Step 1

Log into your online stock account if you manage your stock account online. Not only will you have an online account if you trade your stocks with an online broker, many traditional stock companies provide online access to clients.

Step 2

Click on the “My Portfolio” tab or link of your online account. The total value of all of your individual stock investments should be listed on the page.

Step 3

Select an individual stock and click on it to be taken to the individual stock record . The details of the selected stock are displayed and you can see the worth of that individual stock, broken out by share.

Step 4

Locate a recent paper statement for your investment account if you do not manage your account online. Traditional stock companies generally mail out stock statements monthly.

Step 5

Find the contact details of your stockbroker on the paper statement. Call the broker directly to get an up-to-date worth for your stock shares.
