Subject:  Is Average Cost Basis Best Date:  6/15/2013  4:32 PM
Author:  ResN Number:  118682 of 130719

I'm talking only about mutual funds that have been purchased over a period of 25 years or more. I've been reinvesting dividends and cap gains since the beginning. Whenever I've had cap gains from sales, I've always used the average cost basis. My question is whether the Average Cost Basis is usually for most folks the best way to go. Thanks.
