How do you add in the new shares of Intel to the previous number as far as the purchase price? Is 65 include the new 6 shares and then how do you change the purchase price?


The easiest way to answer your question is to go back to the Rule Maker Portfolio Report archives to look at the data both after and prior to the transaction. This would happen as follows:

1) Over at the Trading History page (, it indicates that the trade was made on 12/29.

2) Over on the Rule Maker Report archives page (, I can get the following historical links:

Before Buy (12/28/99):

After Buy (1/3/2000):

3) On the "Closing Numbers" chart at the bottom of each of these pages, you will find the data that answers your question. A snapshot of this data for INTC is as follows:

Trade Date # Shares Ticker Cost Value LT $ Val Ch
2/13/98 65 INTC $3,494.54 $5,655.00 $2,160.46
2/13/98 59 INTC $2,986.79 $4,897.00 $1,910.21

Therefore, the 6 new shares were simply added to the Shares column, and the $507.75 that was used to purchase the shares was added to the Cost column.

Hope this helps.
