Holy shiite! ---as the Iraqis would say.

In trying to figure my cap gains for H, here are my last 2 buys of the old CD ( I never bought any H);

2/17/06 bot 400 shrs CD @ $15.43. 40.93% was spun off into H, so I got 164 shrs of H @ $6.315 per shr. Today, I sold these shares @ $30.17/shr for a gain of 478%!
Am I figuring this right???

8/14/06 bot 2000 shrs of CD @ $1.80. Yes, $1.80! But H & WYN had already spun off. CD then changed to CAR. The last trade for CAR a few minutes ago was $22.19. Has CAR really gone up over 12 times since August??!!

I must be figuring wrong. Anyone have the answer?
