: ATT had a spin off of Broadband and reverse split on Nov 18. I'm not sure if the cost basis comes out OK if I record both on the same day. Do I need to date the split Nov 19?

: Thanks

Hi GBest,

You should record everything on the day it actually occured. It is fine to
have multiple splits/recombinations recorded on the same date. For info on
how to handle the spin off see:
