    Stock price discrepency?

    Allow me trying to rationize it. Because there are lots of CY holders shorted SPWRA, because there are lots of CY holders waiting for distribution day to sell SPWRB, so SPWRA is under buying pressure and SPWRB will face selling pressure. Consequently on the first day it becomes available to sell, SPWRB will open at somewhere $75 providing SPWRA maintains today's closing price. Then CY WI will open at around $5.

    Make sense? I wish.

    • Yes, something like that is clearly going on - and had been predicted in the press. Witness: SPWR at $86.41 while SPWRV at $78.00.

      Applying the ratio, .2742 * $78 = $21.39. So CY is actually trading over $4! Have to say I was rather looking forward to being able to buy CY at $3. Probably won't get the chance!
