I would only add that IF: you sell all of both issues in the same calandar year, and IF: you have the same holding period category (<12 months, >12 months<18 months, or >18 months) for both issues, then the allocation of basis between the two issues is irrelavent. The only requirement under these circumstances is to make sure that the total of the bases of the two issues equals the original basis of the pepsi shares. And it saves a lot of unnecessary calculations. So sell both on the same day for an easier tax return.Joe Varga
