Want to bet that there will be no distribution of SYF to GE stockholders unless they trade their GE common for SYF shares? PG does their spin offs (Folgers to Smuckers) that way as did MCD when they spun off CPMG. What will be distributed to sell?
This company through this dividend action does not have the shareholders interests in mind. The holders of GE from before the Great Recession are still in the negative unless they bought lots of GE in the $10-15 range to reduce their average cost. GE should have increased the dividend to at least $.25/share quarterly.
