How to record the Kinder Morgan - El Paso merger in Quicken 2011

How do you record the Kinder Morgan merger with El Paso?  I received two different sets of shares from Kinder Morgan symbols KMI and KMLS

According to this site: you likely received the two sets of shares (actual KMI shares and KMI Warrants = the right to buy shares in the future) and cash.  That site also states:  "Treasury Form 8937 is expected to be made available within 45 days of the May 25, 2012 closing. " which should address your basis.  

I would wait for the 8937 info before trying to finalize this in Quicken.  

You can read my comments and suggestions here: with respect to another Cash+Stock merger that recently occurred.  Your case will be similar.

People come to Quicken Community 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.
