    Does this mean that if I currently own 100 shares of ARCT shares that I will now have 28.74 (100x.2874) shares valued at the current market price of the O shares today at $42.42.


    Thank you much!

    Dying to see what Schrosch said last night on Cramer, doubting anything of substance. We've sold a third of our positions and will be selling more. Wish it were more institutionally held as doubt holders would approve the sale. But, given that it's all mom and pops owning it since inception as a non-traded REIT, all are doing to do as Hampton suggest. I hope management gets sued good.
