    If I am reading these right, Ribi1's explanation, along with yours, would result in the same result if all shares were sold at once. The two interpretations would make a difference only if some of the shares were sold.

    Ribi1's explanation looks to be a bit easier to handle accounting wise, just treat the previous shares the same, and treat new shares the same as a purchase, with the declared stock dividend amount as the cost basis.
