Marriott Vacations Worldwide(VAC) which we discussed previously, has now completed its spinoff. Timeshares are a challenging industry; they sell a product that many buyers seem unhappy with.

The former parent, Marriott International(MAR), has had a tough year, and may be a more compelling value now that it has shed its timeshare albatross.
