the reason for MCD is because its become the only food some Americans can afford to buy.

When you consider cooking costs, prep time, travel to buy ingredients. Its actually cheaper to just go to MCD.

This trend will continue.  The big rally has been all about burned out hulks of banks and insurance companies, automakers, homebuilders, *technology* (please bow when you say it), casinos, and overpriced retailers.

As that stuff fades, which we knew it would, the money will have to go somewhere.  Money markets pay nothing.  Long-term treasuries are being artificially propped up by the fed, sorta like the opposite of having something on sale.  Gold is popular and pricey.  Meanwhile, consumer staples are raising their dividends every year and beating treasury yields.  

Dividend stocks in non-scary industries are the next rally.

Sara Lee sues Kraft over hot dog taste claims

The buns came off in a battle between the nation's two biggest hot dog-makers as Downers Grove-based Sara Lee Corp. Wednesday sued its local rival for false advertising.

Sara Lee, maker of Ball Park franks, said that Northfield-based Kraft Foods Inc., purveyor of Oscar Mayer hot dogs, is running ads that claim one particular Oscar dog trumps the taste of Ball Park's entire line.

One of those ads appeared in Wednesday's USA Today in conjunction with a giveaway of up to $1 million in Oscar Mayer hot dogs.

The full-page USA Today ad claimed that Oscar Mayer Jumbo Beef Franks beat Ball Park and ConAgra Foods' Hebrew National hot dogs in a national taste test. But in a footnote, the ad notes that the Oscar Mayer Jumbo Beef frank is being compared to the "leading beef hot dogs" made by its rivals.

The remaining units are 45% of the division Sara lee wants to sell. So if they got $1.88B for 55% of the division. Then they should get another $1.59B for the remaining units left to sell in the division.

That would be a total cash increase of $3.47B


Looking for News on the remaining units sell either next week or early October depending on which bid Sara Lee decides to take.

CEO said on CNBC today that it has Significant offers for the remaining units.
