The ordinary treatment of stock dividends is to adjust your per-share basis to reflect the dividend. Thus, if your basis for the 30 shares was $33, your basis for the 33 shares is $33, or $1 per share. Absent any instructions to the contrary, that's how you do it.

Because there appear to be two types of stock involved, check the paperwork sent to you or the investor information section of the company's website. There may be something special about this distribution and the valuation of the shares.


I checked the paperwork and the investor information section, but I didn't find anything. I'll try the message board for HEICO.
