Hi everyone,

Today, Dean Foods (DF) finished its distribution of Whitewave Foods, giving roughly 1/4 of a share of WWAV (the class A shares) and 1/3 of a share of WWAV.B (the class B shares) to owners of each share of DF.

For the MUE port, that means it'll receive 19 shares of WWAV and 27 shares of WWAV.B, while getting the fractional shares as cash.

I need to look whether I want to continue holding DF as it is now a pure milk play and the economics of that might not be the greatest. Whitewave now owns all the fast-growing brands, primarily Silk, the soy milk substitute.
