Cost Basis

Robinhood uses the “First In, First Out” method. This means that your longest-held shares are recorded as having been sold first when you execute a sell order. The shares themselves are not specifically tracked, but the cost associated with those shares is expensed first.

You can view your average cost basis for a stock you own on the stock’s Detail page.
