    Just became an issue for me (July 2023) when there was a stock split. After several obviously incorrect entries in trying to correct, I thought I had it fixed, but just noticed that although the total number of shares is correct, the basis shows a huge gain when in fact there would be a loss if I sold anything now. I have spent hours trying to fix this unsuccessfully. Is anyone still monitoring this discussion that can help me fix this?

    is there a stock split transactions that reflects the split?

    Also, check the price history. is there an errant price right around the time of the split? make sure the stock split transaction date and the price in the price history align, meaning the on the date of the stock split transactions, the price is reduced by the amount of the split on that same date.
