2828:

Here's your chart on Lloyd's. Yuck.

Take MO for example, i know you own it too. MO split into MO and PM, then Kraft was spun off, and then Kraft split into Kraft North America and Mondolez.

I hear ya. Most of my reduction has been of financial stocks: HRB, BA, BPOP, and STI. I bought STI because at the time they had an ungodly amount of KO stock. They were the ones who took Coke public in 1919. They took their commission in stock. They sold it to meet cash requirements after the 2008-09 meltdown.

BPOP was my play on the Hispanic market in America, but I don't wanna wait around forever to recoup my losses.

I also off-loaded FDX and MKC. MKC got the axe because I had too many food-type stocks with the spin-offs you mentioned.
