Not sure. I tried to find it on line without success. - Destroyed the paperwork from 1996 just last year. All I know it was RJR Nabisco Holdings Corp and then there was a spin off to R.J. Tobacco Holdings, Inc. in 1999.
Financial Professional: Tax.appeal.168, Accountant replied 4 months ago

I will check to see if I can find the ticket symbol and get back to you shortly.

Is the $52 in addition to the $41? If it is please do not call me.
Financial Professional: Tax.appeal.168, Accountant replied 4 months ago

Yes, the phone call amount is in addition. I will not call you. Note that the telephone call and other solicitations are automatically generated by the site, not us, the experts. Still looking into the ticker matter. I will get back to you shortly.

OK Thank you for agreeing to not call me. I have also called and requested a do not call.
Financial Professional: Tax.appeal.168, Accountant replied 4 months ago

I am still checking. So far, the historical stock price sites that I have come across only go back like 18 years. I will check a bit further and let you know. By the way, the ticker symbol for RJR Nabisco was RN, and for RJR for the Tobacco holdings company. I will get back to you shortly.

I did check both of those symbols but couldn't find anything.
Financial Professional: Tax.appeal.168, Accountant replied 4 months ago

Thus far, I have not found any history either. I will spend a few more minutes on the matter.

Financial Professional: Tax.appeal.168, Accountant replied 4 months ago

No, I am not finding anything. Have you tried calling the corporate office and asking if they can provide that information to you. They may or may not be able to provide the information, but you can always ask.
