I had 200 shares of VOD before the deal worth about 7800. After the deal I have odd numbers of VOD and VZ worth about 7400. If anything it's a wash. I don't think we are getting a penny in cash. I keep hearing about the windfall VOD shareholders are getting. I think it's a windfall for VZ. Knowing what I know now, I would have dumped my shares of VOD before the deal. $400 lose isn't terrible, but why would VOD do a deal that burns their stockholders. It's annoying.
