I have two selected values as follows:

Returns Price1
    (SELECT ClosePrice FROM StockHist
      WHERE QuoteDate='2014-1-3'      
      AND SymbolID=11818)

Returns Price2  
     (SELECT ClosePrice FROM StockHist
      WHERE QuoteDate='2013-12-30'      
      AND SymbolID=11818)

How do I SELECT Price1 - Price2?

     (SELECT ClosePrice FROM StockHist
      WHERE QuoteDate='2014-1-3'      
      AND SymbolID=11818)
  -
     (SELECT ClosePrice FROM StockHist
      WHERE QuoteDate='2013-12-30'      
      AND SymbolID=11818)

Incorrect syntax near '-'

Thank you
