Hilliard Lyons investments are overstated in the detail

Two problems:

1.  The investment detail screen for each of my Hilliard Lyons investment accounts includes subtotals ("Total Balanced Funds", "Total Preferred Stocks", "Total Bonds", etc.). This results in "Price Paid" and "Mkt Value" column totals being overstated. While the account total on the overview page is correct. Solution: scrap the subtotals - they are unnecessary.

2. All of the bonds show incorrect quantity and "Price Paid" values - quantity overstated by a factor of 100, price paid also by a factor of 100.  If my Hilliard Lyons statement shows a bond with 10,000 units valued at $100 with a total value of $10,000 - Mint will show a quantity of 100 units with a current price of $100 and a "Price Paid" of over $1,000,000.  Needless to say the bond is showing a significant loss - which is incorrect - off by a value of 100. The price paid should have been around $10,000 also. Solution: Please correct the method of calculating bond cost for Hilliard Lyons. I have 5 bonds within my accounts and they are all overstated in this fashion.

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
