Thanks for your helpful reply. I guess we were both typing at the same time. For some reason the way you did the math made it very simple and obvious but I didn't get it when I went to the site. I think you have probably helped other people like me who might look here for this information. You are very much appreciated.

Your welcome.

Don't forget that your cost basis includes your brokerage commission so add that to the $4,100 before you do the arithmetic to allocate your cost basis to H, WYN, and CAR.
