I bought YUM stock way back when it got a favourable write up by the Motley Fool, it has gained and paid dividends steadily since.
Recently I received a notice: ‘Review - Voluntary Corporate Action’ for a ‘Tender Offer’
It seems that YUM does not like people to have less than 100 shares or if they have more than 100 shares but not full, round numbeers (I currently own 236 shares) I need to buy enough shares to round out the next full 100 - or else?
Not exactly sure about that and whether or not I should buy the shares to bring them up to a full 300.
Is it a good or bad sign that they are doing this I am wondering?
I could not find a board for this stock so I am here to ask this question in the hope that somebody is familiar with the stock, the offer and whether or not this is a good thing?

Since I have been procrastinating over this (did not want to look at my portfolio lately 😐) I need to take action before November 28th.

Thank you very much in advance and Happy Thanksgiving!
