You can use GOOGLEFINANCE("name", "return52") for mutual funds, but not for stocks. Is there another way to get the same result?

If the cell is formatted as a NUMBER:

=ROUND( ( GOOGLEFINANCE("GOOG","price") / index(GOOGLEFINANCE("GOOG","price", datevalue(today()-365) ) , 2,2) - 1 ) * 100 ,2) 

Alternative:

=ROUND( ( GOOGLEFINANCE("GOOG","price") / index(GOOGLEFINANCE("GOOG","price", date(year(today())-1,month(today()),day(today()))) , 2,2) - 1 ) * 100 ,2)

If the cell formatted as PERCENT:

=GOOGLEFINANCE("GOOG","price") / index(GOOGLEFINANCE("GOOG","price", datevalue(today()-365) ) , 2,2) - 1

Alternative:

=GOOGLEFINANCE("GOOG","price") / index(GOOGLEFINANCE("GOOG","price", date(year(today())-1,month(today()),day(today()))) , 2,2) - 1

Another alternative is using the opening price at the beginning of the week. Thanks Alan, is what I needed.

=ROUND( ( GOOGLEFINANCE(A$4,"price") / index(GOOGLEFINANCE(A$4,"open", datevalue(today()-7) ) , 2,2) - 1 ) * 100 ,2)
