BGC is a big player in the interdealer bond markets and has a strong presence in the hedge fund side of things. Move to relative value fixed income high frequency trading will benefit BGC (espeed).

Horizon Kinetics idea:
inter-dealer broker
broker-dealers like Fidelity and Charles Schwab require the services of a company like BGC Partners for certain types of trades.
The company can add value by providing price discovery, market intelligence and, ultimately, match buyers and sellers.
10.45% dividend yield
The market conditions that benefit the company are more volatility and wider transaction spreads – which have been suppressed in this long period of declining interest rates and declining market volatility

Spun off Newmark and still paying a sweet dividend of 10% or so at the current price ($6). Plan to do reverse split to get share price back above $10.

This inter-dealer broker boasts to outperform its peers by 20%. Its fully automated business is driving the growth-narrative--while also serving up a healthy dividend. Compounded, I hope to see it double in a few years while the share-price alone could double in five years. If I'm right, it'll be one for one (my first pick) in Caps!
