Announcements

We’ve made the difficult decision to discontinue the Yahoo Communities effective Jan 24, 2019.

Be assured you will still be able to find answers to your Yahoo product and app questions on the Yahoo Help website (https://help.yahoo.com). In addition, you’ll be able to find the Yahoo Community moderators on Twitter, responding from our many handles including @YahooCare and @YahooFantasyCC.

If you ever need help with your Yahoo accounts, try Yahoo Account Pro for 24/7 live phone support.

Yahoo Finance Cost Basis

New 'Hoo

Yahoo Finance Cost Basis

STOCK AVERAGE COST (BASIS) CALCULATIONS SHOULD CONSIDER ONLY STOCK PURCHASES, IN ACCORDANCE TO THE ORDER OF PURCHASES. STOCK SALES DO NOT INFLUENCE AVERAGE COST, IN PROFIT AND LOSS CALCULATIONS. 

FOR THIS REASON, THE TERM "COST BASIS" IS MISLEADING AND SHOULD BE REPLACED BY "AVERAGE PURCHASE COST".
