Of  what ???????????

Here we go again....an elephant is worth 17 groundhogs and 2 huge horses.  a duck billed platypus is equal to large armadillo.  a shark is equal to 4 crooked lawyers.  and a duck is equal to a duck. There you have it.

The cost of a security can be broken down into 2-3 parts, depending on where you live.  Firstly, it's the cost per share times the number of shares of a security.  For example, 100 shares of General Electric at \$19 would be 19 x 100 or \$1900.  If the commission or transaction cost is \$50 and the General Excise Tax is \$3, the whole cost is: 1900 + 50 + 3 = \$1953.  Hence, when you do your taxes when the security is sold, your cost basis would be \$1953 or \$19.53 per share.

That's how you calculate the cost.
