Yes. Your cost basis (ignoring commissions) is now $5/share. Not to worry! Your money can't evaporate into thin air!" What happens if my tax accountant didn't split the price in half when he did my taxes? he said something about selling off the first 100 shares at the original price...or something like that.Sadly, it means your tax accountant made a mistake. A stock split requires that the cost basis be allocated equally among both the previously held shares and the new shares. You can't simply sell off the original half of the shares and allocate all of the cost basis to that lot.Mike
