Little stumped on this one. How to calculate the cost basis of the HBI shares. Haven't ever been involved in a 'all stock spin-off' before. Would be different if they gave us some percentages. If they posted some have seen them.

Also, I guess we have no idea on when the fractional share is going to be paid either do we? I usually calculate the fractional shares with the percentages they give, but this one they are selling them on the open market and then we'll get our cut.
