Foolish question indeed, but I was wondering: If I buy a stock over several years, adding to my position.... and I decide to sell some stock to balance my portfolio. How do I know that I'm selling the stock I bought at an earlier date rather than the shares I bought more recently? The tax implications are greater for short term capital gains than for long term capital gains. The stock is AAPL which I bought in 2007, and then again in 2012 under the guidance of Supernova.

Thanks for any help,
