I used to do those spreadsheets! (See my first post on TMF of ever, almost 16 years ago) I can't say I miss that part of my prior life.I cut my teeth on the ATT breakup. I thought that kind of stuff was just normal. Took me a few years to realize how complex it really was.FYI- I even have one for AT&T starting pre-break-up...well, at least through about 2000 or so. Wasn't there a spinoff from Lucent (Acelar or something) after Lucent was spun off itself, or something like that?I have a software program that still calculates the AT&T breakup (and partial re-assembly) through 2012. The software is current for 2014, so that's probably the last stock split/merger/acquisition transaction in the group.PS- were any of those spinoffs stock and cash, and so "taxable to extent of boot"? Or did my saying that sentence just cause you to involuntary twitch?Rockwell seems to be a bit easier than AT&T, in that it's almost all spin-offs of stock. No cash involved. And yes, there was a bit of a twitch there. ;-)PPS- at least they're actually getting the cash so they're not DRIPping. Small solace, I know. Very small.--Peter
