    Yep, part of the plan announced 5 years ago, to keep upgrading its portfolio, by culling the least productive assets.

     

    So it is selling 10% of its assets for $19 billion, yet the market cap is just $13 billion.

     

    I wish it would sell 10% more of its assets and buy back 50% of the shares and end the Wall Street stupidity.
