We sold some shares of NGUAX in 2003. Any advice on how to figure cost basis, when the original shares were purchased in 1970, and dividends and capital gains had been reinvested over that time? We're not even certain about the original cost, and adding all the yearly purchases is going to be difficult when we can only find statements dating back a few years. And does it make any difference that it was a UTMA custodial account?

The telephone rep at Neuberger and Berman simply said he couldn't tell us the cost basis when we called to sell. Should we ask them further?
