I've held some stocks for awhile and they have split. I am thinking of selling half of them, but not sure how to figure what capital gains base price I would use. I had 100 and now have 200. Lets just say I paid 25 a share. Would I use half of this amout or take all the original price off the first 100 sold, making the 100 left, 100% capital gains at their time of sale at a later date? And after doing this what would I do if these should split again after doing this?? Thank you for any insite you might give me and hoping this makes sense..smile. I'm pretty new at this stuff.
