Thanks. I did not do anything except downloading the transactions from Merrill Edge to Quicken. I notice now that Quicken just adds the new shares, so the cost is zero. How do I correct this? This must have gone on for ages.
@Sherlock, it appears that Merrill is still sending the transactions described in the discussion I linked above:DivWithdraw of the dividend amountAdded for the reinvested shares, with a cost of zero.The linked discussion describes a couple of work-arounds. It is certainly a bummer that Merrill has not fixed this. It is probably an artifact of their systems transferring the dividend to a DRIP account and buying the shares there.The earliest reference to this problem I found dates to 2015.
