I apologize if the following question has been asked several times but this is quite new to me...in an hypothetical scenario...If I bought 100 shares of company X on 11/1/2008 and later on bought 100 more on 6/1/2009, then sell 100 at a profit on 12/1/2009, how do I calculate taxes on this transaction? is it long-term capital gain or short term capital gain?

thank you very much
