In 1992, I bought 500 shares of company E for $11,500. In 2012, company M bought company E for $7,000 cash and 200 shares of E's stock worth $6,000 at time of issuance plus 300 warrants to buy E's stock for $40 any time until 2017. Stock was trading at $30 per share at time of issuance. Warrants did not start trading until issuance. I received a 1099B for the $7,000 cash but no other information was sent to IRS.Two questions:1. What gain if any should I report this year.2. What is my basis in Company M's 200 shares.The warrants probably have no basis. They are currently trading for $6. If I were to sell them, all the proceeds would be gain, I assume.Any help would be appreciated.
