Here is the scenario: I buy 120,000 shares in stock AAA at $1.00 per share. I buy another 57,000 shares in stock AAA at$1.46 per share. I then buy 80,000 shares in AAA at $0.96 per share. To sum this up, I have 257,000 shares. (120,000 + 57,000 + 80,000) and this cost a total of$280,020. ((120,000 x 1) + (57,000 x 1.46) + (80,000 x 0.96)) Therefore my average price per share is 257,000 / 280,020 = $0.91779158 per share. I decide to transfer 100,000 shares to a friend using this price. So the question is: How many shares do I need to sell from each parcel to get the average price per share? I would love it if someone could post the steps involved to work this out. Cheers!

Here is another example which I hope makes it clearer. I buy 1000 shares in AAA at$1 per share. So cost = $1000 The stock went up and I decide to buy another 5000 shares in AAA at$2 per share. So cost = $10,000 I again buy another 4000 shares in AAA at$3 per share. So cost = $12,000 So totally, I have 10,000 shares and it cost$23,000 Therefore my average price per share is $2.30 (23,000 / 10,000) I decide to sell 3000 shares at$2.30, and I want to take in out in proportion to the the parcels. (pro rata) So question: How many shares should I sell from each parcel to maintain the average?
