I am new to the stock markets and am very intereted in CPB.
I know they are going to spin off some of their less profitable divisions next month. How will that work? How many shares will CPB stockholders get of the new company, and when is the record date? If the spun-off divisions have smaller profit margins than the remaining company, does it make sense to wait to buy until after the spin-off?
Does anyone know the date of record that one must be in by to receive the distribution of Vlasic and what is date that it goes public? I think end of March it does but I would like a date. Also does anyone know the expected price per share and share breakdown. for example 1 for 1 share of campbell etc. thanks
