Today analysts Isaac Pino and Blake Bos provide an update on the biggest spinoff this past week -- Kraft's decision to become two separate companies. 

Blake looks at yet another trading glitch that provided a short-term spike in share price, but he also points out that Kraft has now become more attractive to income investors. Much like Altria and Phillip Morris' separation in 2007, Kraft has become a domestically focused dividend dynamo, upping its yield to 4.5%.
