In summary, the conversation discusses how to set up investing in a REIT or fund by only buying a portion of the total amount. The example given is starting with $20 and how to calculate the equivalent share at different values, such as$7,500 and $7,250. The summary provides a calculation for determining the equivalent share in these scenarios. oweaponx Greetings, all. I’m not exactly sure how to word this, so hopefully this makes sense. I’m trying to figure out how to set this up, maybe a ration? Let’s say I’m looking at a REIT, or maybe a fund. However, instead of buying the full amount of the item, I’m looking at a part. To start, let’s say, to try and keep the numbers easy, that the item starts at \$7,000. Later, it rises to \$7,500. Still later, it drops to \$7,250.

Now, let’s say I’m using \$20, as my start. How do I know what my equivalent will be, at \$7,500. Then, as it drops, what will my equivalent be, when I want to sell. I’m also looking to do similar, with a start of \$50, and \$100, as examples.

I hope this has made sense, and I appreciate help!

I am not sure what you mean by "20 dollars, as my start". Do you mean investing just 20 instead of the full 7000? If so your share is $$\frac{20}{7000}= \frac{2}{700}$$. So when it goes up to 7500 your share is $$\frac{2}{700}(7500)$$ or 21.43. If it then goes down to 7250 your share is $$\frac{2}{700}(7250)$$ or 20.71.
