Does your club own XTO Energy Inc (XTO)? If they do, you
probably have a statement about the Hugoton Royalty Trust
(HGT) "spinoff." Rip West, ICLUBcentral's resident
accountant, says this is no simple spinoff. This is a

Other than lost passwords, our most common questions are about unusual stock transactions. While the majority of mergers, stock splits, and spin-offs follow the same pattern, one little change can make the difference between a few minutes of work and a few hours of research. We want to save you the work and the headache, so check our site first for the proper procedure. When a customer asks us about an unusual transaction that's not in our library, our accountant researches the problem, then we post how to enter it into the software.
Not sure if your transaction is by-the-book? Read our article, "How to Recognize an Unusual
Transaction." While there is no single guide that can give
you a definitive answer on how to treat every type of
transaction, we are committed to helping our customers
handle the strange and unusual. If it's on the list, you can
bet that it's not your typical transaction. If you're not
sure, ask Technical Support!
