    Total return since Miles White has been here ?

    idiots? hmm, at least I know what spinoff means.

    If you owned 100 Abbott share at the time when Abbott spun off a division of Abbott to form a new company(Hospera), then you were given 10 shares of the new company(Hospera). Needless to say, this reduced the value of the Abbott stock.
