Cost Basis Per Share

On the Portfolio screen for a brokerage account, where is the column for "Cost Basis Per Share"?

The only "Cost Basis" column that it currently gives us is "Cost Basis", which is the TOTAL COST BASIS FOR ALL SHARES.

This is unhelpful. We need the "Cost Basis Per Share", which was easily visible/customizable in Quicken 2007, but doesn't seem to be available in new Quicken for Mac.

    For 30 years, we have always had a "cost basis per share" column in the old Quicken for Mac's portfolio views! But now, you guys don't give us that option any more? It is completely unhelpful and non-useful for us to ONLY have a TOTAL COST BASIS FOR THE ENTIRE INVESTMENT OVER TIME. The only thing that actually matters to us is the cost basis per share. Please bring this very important feature back!

    Actually, this should be "Cost Basis per Lot" ... because all shares bought as part of 1 lot would have the same basis.

    Yes, that's perfect! That's exactly what we need! We've had this for years, but now it's gone!
