I agree. I dont consider this to be "bad news". We have been hitting news highs almost everyday recently. And it seems CODI is in "buying" mode when it comes to acqs. I'm guessing this is for more buying. If it adds to earnings right away. I'm all for it. Thats how it works. And the last time they did this, look at where the stock has come up since. This is a good thing and I'm sticking with it! Good timing when it comes to the divy too. I was debating wheather or not to take cash or stock. I'm leaning stock now.
