This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Capital Product Partners L-P shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 600% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Capital Product Partners L-P shares which in turn could have impacted Capital Product Partners L-P's share price.
