Correcting Stock/Mutual Fund Names
Over the years I look at my portfolio holdings and have noticed several stocks of the same name split into two separate holdings even though they are the same stock. For example My holdings will show 93 shares of stock abc and 7 shares of stockabc. I really have 100 shares but an added space says I have two separate holdings. When I try to combine the two under the proper name, stock abc by correcting the title from stockabc to stock abc Quicken won't let me. My work around has been to "sell" the 7 shares of stockabc and then buy 7 shares for stock abc. I also tried transfer of shares but this affects the accuracy of profits and losses when I sell. How do I make this type of correction while keeping accurate original costs?
