```Hi all,

we recently had a thread regarding manipulating a list of functions
which worked fine:-

Manipulate[Block[{funcA, funcB, funcC, funcList},
funcA[z_] := Sin[z + a];
funcB[z_] := Cos[z + b];
funcC[z_] := funcA[z] + funcB[z];
funcList = #[x] & /@ {funcA, funcB, funcC};
Plot[Evaluate[funcList], {x, 1, 10}, Axes -> False, Frame ->
True]], {a, 0,
Pi}, {b, 0, Pi}]

I have tried what I thought would be a trivial a variant of this for
very simple functions:

Manipulate[
Block[{initialinvestment, nbrshares, profit, totalofholding,
funcList},
initialinvestment := 100000;
totalofholding := profit + initialinvestment;
funcList := #[x] & /@ {nbrshares, initialinvestment, profit,
totalofholding};
Plot[Evaluate[funcList], {x, 4, 7}, Axes -> False, Frame -> True,
PlotRange -> {0, 650000}]], {finalprice, 16, 24, 1}]

However I only get the nbrshares plotted, after several attempts I
cannot get the desired output and would appreciate advice as to why
the simpler function specifications lead to failure.

It appears that unless the functions all contain explicit references
such as to "z" in the first working example then they are omitted.

Thanks in advance ... Syd
