    On Dec. 5, 2012, BKE paid $0.20 regular dividend and $4.50 special dividend. This was the highest special dividend paid in company history. I think changing tax laws may have had something to do with it. Company has paid special dividend every year for at least four years. I expect company to pay another special divi this fall. Company has no debt and does not need all the extra cash on hand.

    After reading some of your blogs, it would appear that BKE will again pay out a generous dividend. I will be waiting for BKE to confirm this expected Payment for the month of December 2013. It seems almost unreal to give a large dividend year after year. Go BKE.
