:) I will be working from home today (yeaaaa) so that means 2 computers along with the ability to switch responsibilities...that means I am really going to try to finish those essays for NU. What next? I am going to make the first essay I wrote and spiffy that up real quick, then move on to the next two. I also need to get a hold of Dominic and Shirley for my recommendations. Oh...and ronalum I will give you my address...so you can send me a sealed letter for your recommendation. :D

What else? Did I mention that David has the most beautiful newest second cousin? hehe...

On a more business note...I decided to not read so many of my fun romance novels...aside from reading the multitudes of work-out books I own I also decided to start reading more business books. Like how companies got started, et cetera, so I could learn more about how business works together, per recommendation of John.

Does anyone know what this means?
"Blank company declared the regular quarterly dividend of $16.25 per common share, payable on September 3, 2004 to stockholders of record on August 2, 2004."

Does that mean that however many shares one has of that company they will get a check for $16.25 * the shares?

Ugh...there are so many books to read that it is slightly overwhelming...perhaps I should set a goal to read 1 book a day...or 1 book every other day...

:D Ok...I need to go take a shower...though I am already logged into work I really should get dressed and stuff ;)

$16.25 X the number of shares is the amount. There are, however, several ways you can receive the money; reinvestment etc. I assume you still own the 375,000 shares of Microsoft you bought during the IPO period? You send me your address and I'll send you the letter in a sealed envelope. (Insert wicked evil laugh here, as it will be my pleasure to expose you for whom and what you really are!)

Yah, that's per share. Most companies I own just send me a check which I deposit back at the brokerage. And man that's a BIG dividend for most companies (depends on share price really - It's huge on a $15 stock, not much on a $3,000 one). Is it normal for them? If not, it might have a big negative impact on the share price the day it's issued (its worth finding out why it's so big if you own much of it).

congrats :) (but the dividend is 16.25 cents per share, not dollars... just checked the press release)

still its not a bad dividend on that stock price and you will have alot more before your done if you play your cards right.
