Cramer Quick Take: Investors Flocking To Yield

Cramer explained that companies like General Mills have raised their dividends multiple times, almost doubling it over the past five years. Add to that the company's terrific track record, great management and solid balance sheet and it's no wonder investors are clamoring for shares.
