When Hostess got bought out of bankruptcy, the new owners paid way “too much”, but they are laughing now. They just borrowed money to pay themselves a $900 mil dividend and plan to go public. They are using the same model that ruined Colt Firearms, but as P. T. Barnum said, a sucker is born every minute. If all goes right, the new owners will make back 8 to 15 times their original investment, investors will get to loan money at a good return, and money will become available for new investments, all while saving an American icon. I have not eaten a Hostess product made by the new owners, yet, but I’m glad that I could if I wanted to.
