Hi all,
This is my very first message posted on the Internet, and somewhat new to using the Net, so please be understanding. I've been looking at "Today's FoolWatch", "Fool Port Quotes", and have difficulty understanding the columns headed by # and "In At" in the list of stocks, and reconciling these numbers with the archival data. The "In At" price does not seem to represent the actual price at the first purchase, adjusted for stock splits. What happens when various amounts of the stock are bought and sold at various times? Can one get a record of all past purchases, either for an individual stock or for the entire portfolio? Also, I once saw info on how to begin one's own Fool Port, but can't seem to find it again. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
