Hi Steven,

I hate the names too, and I think it is reflected in their post split prices. I have added a question to my spinoff checklist about whether the name makes sense or sucks like Xylem and Exelis. I am thinking about not buying any spinoffs in the future before the new name(s) are announced.

Haha- Well, I don't know if I'd go that far. The spin-offs from ITT aren't depressed because of their names. It seems to be primarily because of spin-off sales pressure. I have to do more research, but it appears at least two of three post-spinoff companies are very attractively priced right now.
