Fair Warning
WR Grace completed the separation of its construction products business on February 3, 2016 via a one for one distribution meaning for every share of WR Grace stock I owned, I received a like number of shares in the new company. The name of the new company is GCP Applied Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: GCP) and began trading on February 4, opening at $16.27. I am in the process of figuring out how to adjust the cost basis of my WR Grace shares and create a cost basis for the new shares. But for now I have added the new shares to the portfolio.
