CWN- YOU WERE RIGHT ABOUT THE ASTERIAS DISTRIBUTION
I just talked to Fidelity and just got confirmation that i'm getting Asterias shares even though i bought Geron shares after the Record date of May 28,2014(I bought shares on July 16,2014).I will be getting my shares of Asterias on Aug. 15,2014.
I have a question for you cwn.If i bought Geron Jan 2016 options in April and i exercise those options,will i get Asterias shares for those options that i exercise?

Not according to the vast horde of blockheads who refused to look up the rules for themselves. They're still in denial. But to be fair, it's to be expected that they wouldn't believe something they can't understand.
"If i bought Geron Jan 2016 options in April ..."
Do a google search for "CBOE Research Circular #RS14-390" and you'll see how the options were affected by the spinoff.
Also do a google search for "Regulatory Circular RG14-116" (and include the quotation marks) to see what restrictions apply.
