Money Market funds - performance

I've noticed that none of my MM funds have any kind of performance data. ie - any kind of return, etc.... Sure the NAV is fixed at $1.00, but the DIVs are shown in the transaction log,
but there is nothing else indicating any kind of baseline return or yield... Fidelity FDRXX, Vanguard Prime VMMXX

Where applicable I see mm fund values on the Portfolio tab for: Amount Return, ROI%, Average Annual Return 1,3,5 years. (There may be more, I stopped looking.) The Investment Performance report also shows Average Annual Return for mm funds. [Q2005 Deluxe, R6]

when I pull up the Investment Perf report, and sub-total by security, I can see the MMF return... 4.xx%
But - on the Portfolio view, with the Holdings & Summary tab - with the "Value" pulldown, the Shares = Mkt Value = Cost Basis
and in the "Recent Performance" pulldown, the Mkt Value is whatever... and the rest of the columns are all zero -

Performance is by lot. If security has a plus sign in front, click on that and then you ought to see a lot of data.

I think it's more related to semantics... Since the price is fixed at $1.00 - there is no "gain" in market value - And since the Divs are re-invested to buy shares, there must be a "word" I'm looking for that would show the "increase". I tried the "+" to see the individual lots, but they still show all zeroes in the Recent Performance and Historic Performance columns. The only place I've seen any "return" is on the Performance Report.

I believe you guys are talking past one another due to the terminology "Portfolio View" John Pollard is pointing out that what you want is available on the Portfolio View within the Investing Center (Not the Summary tab of an individual account). There you can include ROI, reinvested income, income and other measures which I believe will give you what you are looking for in a money market security. (BTW if you click on the header in the portfolio view of the individual account register you will also see that that measure is a tax view, i.e. gain as a percentage of cost basis)
