CAPS treats spinoffs like large dividends; all the open picks in MO had their cost basis adjusted by $21, which is why you show a purchase price of $66 on a day when MO didn't trade below $88. CAPS didn't automatically pick KFT for you, though, so the gains that KFT has made since the spinoff are not counted in your MO pick.
Hope that helps,
