The Tax Investment Guide does not mention stock splits, so for schedule D purposes what is the "cost", column e, if one sells short term, and/or long term, a stock that splits once or twice in a one year period. Example AOL purchased 5/11 at 87 1/8, split 2 for 1 Nov. 18, and will split again soon. May sell half the accumulated total # of shares before one year is up.

Thanks for help.
