DXC stock issues    (Updated Jun 2, 2021.)

Time to untangle your stock! No one but you really cares about your employment-related stock. You may have had stock in up to seven HP-related companies. Your stock may not all be in the same place or be registered to your current postal address. You may need to retrieve lost stock, dividends, or cash payouts, find stray accounts, or estimate your cost basis. An HPAlumniteam has developed a step-by-step process to find and protect your stock.

"...you will generally not recognize gain or loss for U.S. federal income tax purposes..." HPE/DXC tax basis letter

Your broker may have used a different formula than the one suggested in the tax basis letter provided by the company -- resulting in a somewhat different value. Check your brokerage account online -- or by examining a recent account statement -- to view your holdings in each stock going forward.

Unexpired HPE options: If you had unexpired HPE stock options and were transitioned to DXC, the HPE options in your Merrill Lynch account may have vanished in April 2017 -- with no notification. The HPE options were converted to DXC options and placed in a new Fidelity account.

If you have an existing HP 401(k) or personal brokerage account at Fidelity, go to http://netbenefits.com and use your existing username and password. Otherwise, call Fidelity at 1-800-457-4015 -- select "ESPP" -- on any business day (except NYSE holidays) between 8:30 a.m. and midnight Eastern time. Outside the U.S., call 1-508-787-9902 collect.
