Last year to pay off old company bills?
Well, here’s a real exciting thing to do. Find out when and how much you paid for the stock when you got it!
Argh! I’ve narrowed down how much the Disney would have been worth by finding out when it split (our very first share was $120.00 back in the 80s) in 95. But the Qualcomm isn’t going to be so easy. From tax returns I narrowed down that we bought it in 2000 or 2001. I’ve had it in my mind that we paid over a hundred bucks a share for it (we only got ten). But the historical cost isn’t jibing with my memory.
Well, I found where it was running that much in 2000. It had actually been much higher, but the number $137 sticks in my mind. That was the same time we bought 100 shares of eDig. And you know what? We paid .19 for them back then (we bought more of them for .0366 last year).
We suck at being stockholders.
