How do I figure the cost basis of stock in a company that was bought out receiving cash and shares of stock in the new company? The transaction was approx. 60% cash and 40% stock but the cash portion was less than my cost basis of the original company stock purchase. The stock portion was also a cash equivalent (a % of a share of the new company stock)to bring the dollar offer to 100%. The combined settlement was a net gain.
Thanx in advance

You probably allocate your original basis between the new stock and the cash. Buried somewhere in the paperwork you got should be an explanation of the tax treatment. If you can't find it there, investor relations or the board for the company here should get you the information.
