: Compaq was bought out by HP. I need to show that as well as the payout I got for a partial share. What is the right way? I did it on 3Com/Palm and on Cabletron/Enterasys/Riverstone as sales and purchases, but I had to pay the taxman becuase I did.

Hi Greg,

You can convert your Compaq shares to HP by recording a split for the
appropriate amount (I'm not sure what this was...). For partial shares
that you receive payment for, record this as a sell.

Then, just change the name/symbol under "Investment Properties...".
