    Bought $ABT for the div a while back, should I just sell it now?

    • Minutemen: Why would you sell it? Just because the divy is less now due to the spinoff? You still have the combined divy from ABT + ABBV.

    • weed: My first inclination was to double up on $ABBV for my income account.

    • Minutemen: ABBV does have a nice yield compared to ABT. Both are still great companies. ABT has higher growth potential, but more risk.

    • Minutemen: sorry, I meant vice versa on the risk...

    • weed: So you see $ABT as less risky?

    • Minutemen: Yes. See the following article (in which the author proposes selling ABBV and buying more ABT): http://on-msn.com/ZBOUmr
