i am looking into joining coca cola's drip program. in order to do so, i need to have one share issued in my name first. i was thinking about transferring one from my ameritrade account. however, the fee is $40 to do this. i'm sure that i could do this cheaper somewhere else, but this is more convenient. my question is, can i somehow include this $40 fee in my cost basis (in addition to the actual cost when purchased through ameritrade) if and when i finally sell that share? in other words, if the original share cost $50 and with the transfer over to my name is another $40, can i put the cost basis as $90 or in some other way add the fee in? or is that money just lost forever?
