Since the consolidation, my CBS shares have been changed to BVTLF (over the counter?). My broker says that the symbol will stay as BVTLF until Bard management complete the "transfer". Until then I can not sell any of my "old" shares. I can only buy the new CBS but can not sell the BVTLF. It's been 2 weeks now since the consolidation. Are there other shareholders in the same situation?  

I ask my broker if any thing can be done on his (the brokerage firm's)  part but the answer is no. He says that everything depends on Bard and it may take a very long time for the company to rectify the situation.
