Corrected message, please ignore previous post....ok, i need to know if i've figured this out: for individual securities, if i bought xyz company shares twice in one year, 50 shares @ $20/share = 1000, c.b= 20/share 20 shares @ $40/share = $800, c.b=40/share and sold all of the shares at the same time at $50/share (in the same year as purchased), since you cannot use an average cost basis for stocks, do i list the final transaction as separate transactions on my tax forms? ie 50 shares sold at $50/share, gain of $1500 and 20 shares sold at $50/share, gain of $200? or do i just calculate the two different gains and then add them together? and if the stock split after i purchased all of the shares, will the cost basis be 100 shares @ $10/share and 40 shares @ $20/share?
