Its underwriter has set a subscription price of $25 per share and will charge Boan a 6 percent spread. If you currently own 6,000 shares of stock in the company and decide not to participate in the rights offering, how much money can you get by selling your rights?

Valuing a Right Mitsi Inventory Systems, Inc., has announced a rights offer. The company has announced that it will take four rights to buy a new share in the offering at a subscription price of $35. At the close of business the day before the ex-rights day, the company's stock sells for $70 per share. The next morning, you notice that the stock sells for $63 per share and the rights sell for $6 each. Are the stock and/or the rights correctly priced on the ex-rights day?
