    Dividends on the Ride Down

    As I began analyzing amusement-park operator Cedar Fair (NYSE: FUN), it reminded me of a computer game that I used to play called Rollercoaster Tycoon, because I felt like I was on a roller coaster when debating whether to open a position in this company.

    Cedar Fair is known as a pure-play, profitable, well-managed company that has paid and raised dividends every year for the past 19 years. Though competitor Six Flags (NYSE: SIX) is a pure-play amusement-park operator as well, it lacks all of the other qualities that Cedar Fair brings to the table — it is buried in debt, and its cash flow reminds me of its wilder coaster rides.
