Because we have a difference in accounting treatment for the price gains between our 2 security classifications, we need 2 account assignment references.

Trying it out

For our demonstration, we will use IBM as the issuer and Bank of Montreal as our counterparty and depository bank. Use transaction code BP to enable them in these roles with your company code. The next step is to create a security account. Use transaction TRS_SEC_ACC to create the account.

34 Security account.PNG

We also need to create the security we will be trading using FWZZ

35 Security Class.png

At this point, we are ready to enter our first transaction in FTR_CREATE. In the initial screen, we have to specify our company code (1001), transaction type (100-purchase), our counterparty (BMO) and the ID number (IBM_CS).

36 deal entry.png

It is possible to add the commission (expensed or capitalized) directly in the deal by using the “other flows” tab. After saving the deal, we have to settle it in FTR_EDIT as the processing category we selected requires settlement. Once the deal is settled, use TBB1 to post the purchase transaction. Let’s add a manual fee with FWBS.


To be able to fair value our position at month end, we need a closing price. You can use FW17 to enter a price for the security class. Remember that our valuation step requires a closing price. Because we did not configure reset flows for valuation, we need to use the “Mid-Year Valuation with Reset” option in TPM1. Next, let’s pretend IBM declares a dividend of 25 cents per share. We first need to enter a dividend condition on the security class using FWZZ.

37 condition.png

Let’s also pretend that we participate in IBM’s DRIP but that they don’t support fractional share ownership. In order to capitalize the dividend, we have to use FWZE and enter the amount and number of shares to capitalize.

38 capitalize dividends.PNG

Whatever amount is left (3$ in our example) will be expected in the bank sub account. The next business process we will cover is Corporate Actions. Let’s assume IBM announces a 2 for 1 split effective Feb 12th. We must first enter the action using FWK0. We must also activate the action before we can post.

39 Corporate Action.PNG

To make the split effective in the sub-ledger, we must post it with FWKB. If you look at our position in TPM12 after posting, the number of units has doubled but the purchase value has not changed.

40 Position.PNG

To finalize this example, let’s sell all of our shares for a big profit. Once the deal is settled and posted with TBB1, we end up with the following entries in the posting journal (TPM20)

Thanks for reading. I hope you have enjoyed this post and that you learned a thing or two in the process.

      Hi Matt,

      Just want to understand few steps in the above post below are

      1. Do we need to run and post every month valuation (TPM1) until the stock sales process?

      2. For stock gain/loss do we use any special G/L like fair value adjustment account?

      3. under one ID number if we purchase multiple stocks in different dates , All stocks can we show as one position in TPM12 Report?

      Hi Prasad,

      1. Yes, as long as you have a position, you run TPM1 to post the fair value and FX adjustments

      2. It is possible to post your adjustments to a GL separate from your position if you want. In that case, you need to associate your update types to positing specification that hit that account symbol instead of "position". Using Post and Reset will also make that process work better as you'll be able to bring the account balances to 0 if the position is sold off.

      3. as long as the purchases are made under the same valuation class. In our example we also had securities account as a differentiation. If all parameters are the same you are correct, TPM12 will show only 1 position.

      Hello Matthieu

      How do we calculate P&L for shares sold? I maintained in the customization node "Assign Consumption Sequence Procedure" FIFO method for my co code as below


      After the above customization, my simulation results show me profit as per AVERAGE costing, and not as per FIFO

      Is there some setting/simulation step missing?

      Appreciate your help

      Did you enable single position management in "Define and assign differentiations"? I unfortunately don't have the time to try it out right now but I believe this is a requirement for the consumption procedure to be taken into account as it will make SAP track the different purchases in different positions. Not having single position management enabled means SAP keeps track of only one qty/dollar value position hence the average cost P&L calculation on sales.

      Hi Matt,

      I have done below configuration for stock investments.

      While doing valuation (TPM1) update types are not triggering properly and actual valuation not getting reset.Please request you to check the below configuration and advice any missing steps.

      Business scenario: Monthly basis we run valuation and it supposed to be get reset the valuation for next month.


      example scenario:

      Market price:250.00 INR as on 31.01.2016

      Market value: 625000.00

      market price: 220.00 INR as on 28.02.2016

      market price: 260.00 INR as on 31.03.2016

      TPM1 (security write down as on 28.02.2016)



      Security write up as on (31.03.2016)
