Most online broker export files usually only contain executed buy and sell transactions and generally do not accommodate for the following events:
- Transfers of holdings from another broker
- Off-market transfers
- Shares obtained in a float, dividend reinvestment plan, share purchase plan, bonus issues, or rights issue
- Shares buybacks
- Reconstructions (mergers, acquisitions and spin-offs)
- Splits and consolidations
These events need to be manually entered into Stock Doctor, for assistance with corporate actions please refer to the Advanced Reconstruction section.
