I received a kind note from a member of another board, guiding me to message number 1648 on this Board. Message 1648 dealt with the WCOM spin off, and it does not appear that this spin off is treated as a dividend. I hold shares in T, which is distributing AWE shares to the holders of T as of 6/22. This distribution is to take place somewhere around July 9. Now, my question. Since I will be receiving 16 shares of AWE with about 9 cents remaining, how do I treat the 16 shares? T calls this distribution a dividend. How would I enter this into my Quicken?

Thanks in advance for the advice.
