think the Blue Apron acquisition will work well. $8 billion was a lot to pay. But you have to like brands.

Seriously considering pitching General Mills as a Dividend play. While certainly not a game changer, and owner of many brans that may be losing market share, General Mills is not asleep at the wheel. The market recently reacted poorly to their 8B acquisition of Blue Buffalo a premier, high priced "organic" pet food maker. While pricy Blue Buffalo is a great brand and people are spending more and more on their pets. General Mills has enough distribution expertise to be able to monetize new brands, they may acquire and produces more than enough cash flow to buy brands and pay down it's debt. Consumer brands have been absolutely hammered across the board, but I think the market my be discounting a lot of brand equity. GIS should be able to continue to be a cash flow machine and pay its high yielding 4.443 dividend. This might not end up being my best income idea but ill put my contrarian thinking to the test here.
