    • for myself, when I'm issued shares, I will keep them both for at least 6 months. I think Cramer did a recent show on spinoffs that showed the returns on holding both the spinoff and the parent was quite profitable. If you sell one or the other, you are taking a guess which one will do better. I'll just treat it as one stock. The thinking is though the paper side of the business is the laggard but who knows?
