1. It's highly unusual for public companies to shed any assets but it seems like CEO, Paul Diaz, is following the advice of "sticking to his knitting" and taking advantage of a low stock price to work out a divestiture that recapitalizes the company by pruning outlier properties.
    With a stock price high of about $25 per share in 2011, the current roughly $10 per share stock price is obviously significantly lower and this type of transaction may be the "shot in the arm" necessary to pull the company's value back into higher ranges.
