My current broker has no idea of what I paid for 90% of what is in my portfolio, either. It's on the third or fourth generation of broker having 'acquired' my account. I wouldn't be surprised if it changes yet again along the way. And I'm in no hurry to tell them what my cost basis is.

My TD Ameritrade account statements don't even tell me the cost basis for stocks, like HD, that I purchased in 1999. This is the only brokerage account I have ever had. I wonder if they would be able to provide such information if I sold my positions.
