DISTRIBUTED CORPORATE PROFITS: More commonly termed dividends, this is the portion of a corporation's after-tax accounting profit that's paid to shareholders or owners. Corporate managers usually try to pay the shareholders some minimum dividend that's comparable to returns from other financial markets--such as the interest on government securities or corporate bonds--to keep the owners from selling off the company's stock. That portion of after-tax accounting profit that's not paid out as dividends is typically invested in capital.

PINK FADFLY
Your compete MICRO*scope for today

You are the type of person who can sense when fashion trends are about to change direction just by the positioning of a model's pinky finger in a magazine photo. Family and friends always anticipate seeing you, wondering what you will be wearing THIS time. Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time flipping through mail order catalogs hoping to buy either a handcrafted bird house or a weathervane with a chicken on top. Be on the lookout for empty parking spaces that appear to be near the entrance to a store. You should consider shopping at stores or businesses beginning with the letter I, but do not buy any products with a serial number or product code containing the number 737230. Your preferred shopping venue is high-end specialty stores. Your special symbol is the forward slash (/).


Is this You?

As a Pink Fadfly, you flutter from store to store, from product to product, looking for the latest fashions. You are the trend-setter and at the forefront of all fads. If it's new, if it's trendy, if it's on the cutting edge, you are there. Price is not important. Quality is not a prime consideration. For you it's not a matter of form over function or style over substance. The latest trend trumps all.


This isn't me! What am I?

The Odds On GAMBLING

I'm sure there's a great philosopher somewhere who once uttered the words, "Life's a contradiction and we're all a bunch of hypocrites." Take me for example. Just this morning I walked by Smilin' Ted's All-Comers Insurance Agency to drop off my annual shoe insurance premium (for protection against blowouts), then made a pit stop at Master Sprocket's convenience store where I plopped down five dollars on five (count 'em, five) Super Luck-O Multi-State Lottery tickets. Within a space of two blocks and twenty minutes I bought $37.56 worth of shoe insurance to avoid risk and then spent another $5 to take on some risk. Am I a walking contradiction, or what?
