I talked to the EQC investor services person. She said after the most recent common dividend the conversion ratio on EQC-D has been adjusted to 0.5813. Up a bit, but still too low to add value. The conversion value is around $18.49 -- no help to holders of the convertible if the company is liquidated. You'll get just the $25 par value.

I sold. Happy with my years of safe income and my capital gain on this position.
