Question
Is there some place I can get historical prices for stocks that are no longer listed.

I lost files containing prices paid for a number of penny stocks 1998-2002.  I'm trying to figure out losses for tax purposed.

Answer
Kip, there are several places that have that information available.

The easiest (and cheapest) for an individual investor is in the newspaper. Local libraries usually have old newspapers going back decades available on microfilm. That is an easy, and free, way to look up old prices.

Larger brokerage firms often will have access to old prices through one of several services, so if you have a broker, give them a call and ask them to look up the historic prices for you.

The TSX also has a research service for old stocks, but they do charge for it, so I would suggest you try the first two methods and see if you can find the information you need there.
