One additional thought...

On a previous post, I mused on when to buy during a spinoff. I believe that we were lamenting missing out on WU. I still think that if you like both companies and the distribution ratio is low, i.e 1-1, 2-1, etc., you should buy before the spin. You would have done pretty well with ACV and SBH by buying before spin. Of course, now I have the benefit of hindsight so that's easy for me to say.

I don't want to risk starting another long rambling post, so I am just going to leave it at that.
