This share deal is dumb. Its keeping the share price down now that 5$ shares will flood the market. Wish they had just cut to .25 More shares is never good
Absolutely right, however since we are stuck with it the shares option remains the better choice -- and it won't be taxed until you sell the shares.
I would be careful about the tax issue. There is a cash dividend, but you are given the option to buy shares at a discount. That is similar to a DRIP, which is taxable at the date of the cash dividend.
