Thanks so much for your generous time, Peter and other(s). I guess I am more concerned about keeping track of the new and separate holding period for the reinvested "purchased shares," something which scares me off, having read on Fairmark.com about potential "split holding period," when partial shares of reinv. divs trigger selfsame. If, just for example, $20 dividend distributed March 30 buys 1.5 shares while the June 30 one yields $22 and 1.7 shares, how and if will I figure the (split?) holding period. From your posts, if correctly understood, each time divs are paid out and reinvested, I should keep track of that date as a separate list of a transaction.? In above hypothetical, trade date would=March 30, purchase cost=$20, and number of shares=1.5. If I am correct holding period would begin March 31, so if desiring to sell long-term, I would wait one year from the 31st, at least.Much apprectian, friend.
