If you sell the whole lot, the original cost basis still applies. If you sell part of the lot, then the cost basis is computed based on the split adjusted purchase prices and shares. Or you can compute the basis as a percentage of the original cost basis... You sell 100 shares (50% of your holdings) tomorrow with a cost basis of 50% of the original cost basis.Hope this cleared it up.- howardAha! Thank you for the detailed response. This does, in fact, clear it up for me. I had been trying to work it out and was going in the right direction—but that one little piece just hadn't fallen in place yet.Regards,t2p
