YHOO and AOL are stupid not to pursue RNWK early,it makes strategic sense for either of them toacquire RNWK. Now RNWK will run up quickly and they haveto spend more to do so. Sigh, I'd say YHOO and AOLhave missed a golden opportunity!
The only date that is important to those thathold shares in street name (which is most everyonethat trades online or through a brokerage firm)is theFeb. 11 date of issuance.Record date is forinvestors that hold the actual certificates.
You could have shortened your sentence right there. Yahoo and Broadcast.com were stupid to screw around with Real Networks. Mark Cuban is an ass (who knows, he might even be HSNS2000).
that's because they want to get ready for the next split in 3 months! corporate charter forbids more than 1 split in 3 months, so real is just getting this one over with quick!
The actual split take effect on Feb 11th. Anyway, should see RNWK xoom beyond 230 before the split. Good luck.
reading is that the split is actually scheduled for the 11th of FEB, the delivery date. Tne 28th of Jan is merely the record date. Any help in clarifying this would be greatly appreciated.
Don't get confused. 28 is the record date. We still do not know when they will actually split the stock. Am I right? Anyone?
