The SBY and TWO deal,
with TWO shareholders getting about .059SBY shares for every 1TWO share,
seems to me to be a promotion campaign to get SBY better known.
Before today I'd never heard of SBY.
SBY is selling for over 19.
SBY has yet to pay a dividend, as per Yahoo.
Will SBY declare its own dividend, and soon?
Owning 2000 shares of TWO on the ex-date will net you 118 SBY shares,
hardly enough to whet one's whistle.
Someone seeing those lonely 118 shares in their account might want to round it up to a higher number.
The old "give 'em 188 and they'll buy 882 more trick".
Unfortunately I've experienced the worst in that with FTR, a rural telecom,
shares which came in a VZ dividend.
Bought more. :(
This here is a much different animal these ole' REITs are though,
