    shares average price

    I am confused about how to calculate the average price of shares. Lets say that last year I had 74 shares bought at $7.7 per share , then this year I bought 1045 shares at $14.35 per share with the same company. What is the average price that I have to consider?

    I'm not convinced that the average price has any usefull context here but....

    simple average = (7.7+14.35)/2 = 11.025
    weighted average = (7.7*74)/(74+1045) + (14.35*1045)/(74+1045) = 13.91
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton
