Average Price per Share

A measure of how much an investor pays for each share of stock calculated by taking the prices one pays and dividing by the number of prices. For example, suppose one buys five shares of the same stock, paying $10, $11, $12, $13 and $14, respectively. The average price in this case is $12. The average price per share affects the taxes owed when one sells the stock. See also: Average up, Average down.
