I was reading your explanation of tax consequences of stock splits and the general definitions of stock splits, stock dividends and stock spinnoffs. You described stock splits and stock dividends and the same beast. In fact, as you undoubtedly know there are differences between a stock split and a stock dividend. I was interested in why you did not define the two correctly.
