Of the firit 17 ncnt utility companies re- tcr that, thfir not profits show a drop--but not as much as many predicted. The first flash flood of earn- injj statements indicates sales and sross earnings were at a record level in .the year just ended. After federal, state-and local tax collectors dipped into gross earnings, however, net 'profit ran behind 1950 totals In most manufacturing companies, as. expected. So f a r , profits arc lagging by only six tenths per cent, however. Also as expected, the profit picture--on the basis of the first returns--is spotty. More utility companies, for C-xample, show gains over 1950 t h a n show t'«clincs. Oil companies are expected lo fit into that side of the Icdccr, too, alon; with some steel products, packers, and- most airlines and aircraft builders. Early profit statements, like first election returns, show only the trend, not the f i n a l result. But the president's Council of Economic Advisers is on record with estimates for 1951 earnings as a ·whole. Its guesses arc: Record earnings before taxes of 4-t and' f o u r - f i f t h ? billion, whittled down 60 per cent by taxes. Corporations will have I S and one-tenth billions l e f t after they settle with )hc taxman the council estimates.

Dividends paid on common .slock issues listed on the New York Slock Exchange declined in 1851 by only one tenth per cent from 1950. They paid out 55,460,586,000 in dividends last year and $3,470,244,000 in 105". The profits ami dividend pros- peels for 1952 have been judjcd by most observers w i l l i n g to go out on n limb and EUCSS as hcinf: fairly favorable, although most! expect both earnings and clivi-1 "dcnds to be smaller this year than ! last.
