That's the guy I was thinking of when drawing an analogy regarding Dreman. He bought 15% of Vencor, and many jumped on his bandwagon. They formed a REIT in a taxable spin-off transaction.
The shareholders paid tax on the value of the operating company stock they received (about $12) with cash out of their pockets. Those that didn't sell now have stock worth zilch. But they still have their REIT stock (VTR), with suspended dividends and a bankrupt tenant. Perhaps that was one of the three out of 10 that Price was allowed under the Lynch success formula.
