i sympathize with the way the the split up took place. i know if it happened to me i would be upset. life has a lot of funny twists and turns. as a result of 911 my retirement dropped to 15% to its value at its low point after saving for almost 25 years for retirement. i have not recovered yet. so whatever was done at the time of the split i am sure had negative consequences for a lot of people. hope those who still have a lot of stock can maybe recoup a small portion of the loss with a rising stock price. one never knows.
