Asset Class

Symbol/CUSIP
A Symbol/CUSIP is a sequence of letters and/or numbers representing and identifying a specific security. These numbers are used when stocks are bought or sold. By clicking on the symbol, you can obtain market price information.

Date Acquired
The Date Acquired is the date the security was purchased or received into your account.

Date Sold
Date Sold represents the date that the security was sold or redeemed.

Cost
Cost is the total cost, including commissions, on each purchase transaction.

Sale Proceeds
Sale Proceeds is the dollar amount received from the sale or redemption of a security.

Realized Gain/Loss
The realized gain/loss is the difference between the cost and the proceeds from the sale or redemption of a security. A gain occurs when the proceeds from the security sold are greater than your cost basis. A loss occurs when the proceeds are less than your cost basis. If cost basis is unavailable, no gain/loss is calculated.

To calculate gains and losses, the highest cost position has been liquidated first, unless you have instructed your Baird Financial Advisor differently (i.e., on a first-in first-out basis). The realized gain or loss totals are presented for your information only and should not be used for tax reporting purposes. Please rely on your transaction confirmations and IRS Form 1099 when preparing taxes.

Term
Term is the length of time between the date of purchase and the date of sale of a security. Short term refers to security positions held for one year or less. Long term refers to security positions held for more than one year.
