The stock became a REIT with a new CUSIP. I talked to GEO shareholder relations and got the information about this. They were very helpful. I was told that my stockbroker needs to read the SEC filing and the letter that GEO sent out through their Transfer Agent regarding this change. It is basically the same company, only now a REIT. Once my stockbroker received the information, they took care of this minor problem.
GEO paid a dividend at the end of May which shows up on my brokerage account. My broker reinvested the dividends. Then on Aug. 28 GEO paid a dividend but my broker didn't reinvest the amount and put it into the money market. I called and was told there was a reorganization and they are waiting for an answer to see if the dividend is eligible for reinvestment.
