    spin off

    The drop last week to me it was a good entry point. With the January 1st spin off I wonder if it will unleash value to both companies (stock) or if it will mess up the stock value. I am a beginner investor and more than assumptions, I am looking for investors sentiment about the subject. Any thoughts?

    • Kraft's spinoff yielded 17% more capital gain for all shareholders. ABT will do no difference. I like to spinoff more to fully enpower baby ABTs, let them grow freely without any corporate #$%$. In terms of dividends, keep one CORE payer, that will be good. HPQ will be the next. The spirit of capitalist is competition not politicial nonsenses. It all focuses on net cash inflows to the balance sheet.
