could somebody explain to me how I had a 1000 melrose shares which I had purchased at 172.2 which with fees and stamp came out at £173.3, they were cancelled yesterday and I was issued 900 on to my account with a new average price of 192.6p which actually works out at the same purchase price but whilst the share price as of today is at 171.8

my account for the melrose shares is showing over a 10% loss. (£186 loss ) the difference between purchase and todays price is 15p per share which should be -£135 to my reckoning the the sums dont add up

Hi @ro55,

There was Corporate action on Melrose a consolidation of 9 for 10.

When you transfer shares into your account, the book cost will be displayed as zero, unless you have provided us with a figure on your transfer form. The book cost will also be changed to zero if there has been a corporate action on your shareholding.

You can find how to edit you book cost here.

Once edited your P/L will be acurate.

All the best - Arvin
