    Dividend great idea

    Since 2008 and the Fed keeping short rates at zero and even the ten year bond below 1.5%, everyone has been putting money into - dividend paying stocks! Well, now CAKE is one of those, by odd coincidence paying about the same as that ten year bond. About a zillion mutual funds and individual investors will now buy in! Should effectively put a bottom on the stock price around 30 ... until and unless the Fed relents.

    Does that help stockholders? Eh. It saps 1.5% growth from the stock price, too, plus it's taxable. So, all in all, a mildly clever move, just hope it's not too clever for its own good.
