Many moons ago, I purchased 3 shares of IBM stock for $1,284.00 Now,after 4 splits,I have a total of 48 shares.The first split was a 25% dividend.I received the dividend check for $232.00. ( I did report it on that year's 1040) Therefore,I still owned 3 shares for a total value of $965.00Further splits were (2)2:1 and (1) 4:1Many question is... What is my cost basis ?...the original $1,284 or the value of the 3 shares after I cashed in the dividend? I believe it is thelater, but I am not positive.<<<
