BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS MONDAY, MARCH J8, 198B Early Reports Indicate First Quarter Profits To Be Higher than'54 By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (AP) — Profits in the first quarter now drawing to a close appear sure to top last year's earnings for most companies. Scattered first reporte — from companies with fiscal years that don't conform to the calendar year show first-quarter net income after taxes higher in two cases out of three. Dividend payments are running ahead of last year also. In January and February, the Commerce Department says, corporations paid 982 million dollars to stockholders. That is 5 per cent mure than they paid out in the first two months of 1654. Upturn to Continue Estimates by top men or corporations in many industries show most are confident of improving their profit position for the January, February and March period, when they make their official reports some six or eight weeks from now. Many expect the earnings upturn to continue at least until the middle of the year. The turn for many of them came in the final months of 1954, after a year of shrinking earnings. The profit gain won't be unanimous this spring, hmvever. Some industries, like aircraft and electronics, did so well a year ago that the mark will be hard to top. Others, like machine tools, with long periods elapsing between orders and delivery, won't see the increase in earnings until later, although new orders are coining in now faster than a year ago. A better-profits story this year More Sales te one of more sales and lowered coste as a result of new and more efficient machinery and plants. In 1954 many companies man aged to show better income after taxes in comparison with 1953 be cause the excess profits tax no longer was pulling net earnings down. In 1955 the same tax rules, by and large, apply as in 1954. This year the smaller companies are expected to share in the happier profits outlook.
