Market Chatter-Corporate finance press digest






Dividends are particularly important for investors to consider, because historically speaking dividends have provided a considerable share of the stock markets total return. Fast forward to 5/31/2012 and each share was worth $77.79 on that date, a loss of $0.48 or 0.6% decrease over twelve years. But now consider that you collected a whopping $10.77 per share in dividends over the same period, increasing your return to 13.15%. Even with dividends reinvested, that only amounts to an average annual total return of about 1.0%; so by comparison collecting a yield above 11% would appear considerably attractive if that yield is sustainable.

Terrorism finance expert: Beware of transactions that look too good to be true








Lawrence Mayor William Lantigua is sued over alleged campaign finance violations






The presentation is intended to draw attention to terrorism financing so businesspeople will be more aware of practices that might encounter. Bankers are very good at filing suspicious activity reports involving, for example, large cash deposits, but they are not really focused on trade-based money laundering, he said in an interview. The latter is believed to be the No. 1 way terrorists finance their operations, according to Cassara. aGenerally speaking, audiences are amazed at whatas going on right under our noses, but we just donat see it,a Cassara said.
