* This factor can be used to convert the basis (cost) of the stock from a pre-split to a post-split basis. For example, if you bought 1 share for $45 in 1991, multiply the $45 by 66.67%, then by 50%, and then by 50% again to obtain the cost adjusted for three subsequent stock splits. The adjusted basis is $7.50.
