    The spinoff is of considerably smaller value than stated would be the case in a SA piece penned in December, 2013. At that time, the author said NEWM shares would be distributed on a 1:1 basis and not a fourteenth/unit basis. Not researching for myself as I should have, I added to my 6,600 units and now hold 8,000. I'd benefited last year from the spin of NRZ which I sold a couple of months later when I saw it was going nowhere strikingly good. My view held that, of the two, NCT would prove to be the superior long term investment. I continue to hold that opinion.


    That said, 8,000 units of NCT will receive 577 shares of NEWM. Unless the new shares are priced at just a few dollars, I'll be happy enough to give things at least a couple of months to exhibit momentum, be it an upward bias or not.


    I need to verify better next time!

    8,000 units, nice! I'm far behind that. But I have been adding to (NCT). Yup, I think it is the superior investment, but I hold on to (NRZ). It has doubled its dividend since its spinoff.
