Cedar Fair Stock

Saturday, December 21, 2002 7:41 AM

I have a friend that says his sisters had invested a great deal of money into Cedar Fair Stock. He doesn't remember what happened but for some reason was saying that Cedar Fair went out of business because something happened to their stock. I know that Cedar Fair is still together and very wealthy, but does anyone know if the stock would have split? Anyone have any idea even what he is talking about? Thanks.

What do you mean something happened to their stock? Did someone steal it?

Did it split? I don't think so.

Does anyone know what he's talking about? No, how should we if he doesn't even know!


A one that is not cold, is hardly a one at all.

Cedar Fair did have a 2 for 1 stock split back in 1997. Why this would lead someone to believe that they were going under baffles me, but nonetheless.

Looks pretty good to me. Maybe he is thinking of Six Flags because their stock really went down.

They're actually "unit," not "stock," because Cedar Fair is an LP, a very rare type of public company these days.

I own a ton of FUN, and it's the best paying thing I have invested anywhere. Dividends are about an 8% return annually and the price generally stays pretty stable.

FUN seems to be one of the most stable things to buy there is, year in and year out.

For those of you that don't know it's Limited Partnership status is based on the fact that while you can own stock in it you have no voting rights.

LP vs stock is mainly used for Tax purposes instead of the company paying corporate then the investor paying capital gains, the tax liability is filtered down to each indivual unit and the unit holder. One reason why the distribution, as its called vs. dividends is as high as it is.

Wow. A coaster site with a economics lesson. And I thought all the good teachers were gone.

Thank you for explaining all that and clarifying that. It helped a great deal. Looks like I know where to put my money next!

Hey, do full time employees at parks like KBF (there are ones that have been there forever) get stock options?
