Calculate Cost Basis of Stock
Ok, I have seen a lot of posts on this question but not sure they are correct for my issue.
I have an ESPP and i have all the purchase prices of the 845 shares that I own.
In April of last year, the company switched to a new brokerage. So in Quicken, I created a new brokerage account and did a transfer from one to the other.
Then, in November of 2015, the company split into 2 new companies. From the brokerage firms download, there was a Sell of the 845 shares from the old company and a Bought of 845 shares to the new company at $0.
The company also gave 845 shares of the new company and listed from the brokerage at $0.
Now when I look at my investments in Quicken, I have a $0 Cost Basis for both stocks. But on my account on the brokerage website, shows 2 different cost basis for the entire amount of each stock.
