How can I edit the purchase price of a stock that is incorrect?

Just as the question asks, I am trying to find out how I can edit/update/correct the "Purchase Price" that is displayed that is not correct?  By way of note, these were previously private shares that went public and are currently being held by a transfer agent.

Hi jpmorgan00,

You can attempt to edit the price paid of a stock by following the steps below:

- Login to your Mint account and click the Investments tab
- In the left hand column, click the account the stock relates to, then click the sub-account
- Once you go that, on the right, the "price paid" should be a link. If you click it, a pop up should open and you can edit the price paid
- Clicking "okay" should save your changes

Please note that the Investments area of the site is known to be buggy, and I have heard from some users that the steps above don't work. If that's the case, I'm very sorry, but there's nothing we can do at this time to adjust this on your behalf. 

Hope this helps!

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
