An Aug. 22 column

To Follow the Money, Look at Loans contained an error. The article said that if a bank received a $100,000 deposit, it could make $900,000 in loans. Actually, it could make only $90,000 in loans (holding $10,000 as its reserve requirement and lending the rest). The process keeps repeating to achieve the higher figure.

The Sept. 3 Jim Jubak column,

Dividends: A Beacon in the Market's Fog, incorrectly listed

General Dynamics'

(GD:NYSE) trailing 12-month dividend as $1.18 per share. In fact, the firm increased the quarterly dividend to 32 cents a share in March, payable to shareholders of record as of April 11. That put total dividends over the past 12 months at $1.28 per share.

A Sept. 8 story,

Rate Case Gives Duke Energy New Headache, erroneously reported that South Carolina regulators had determined that

Duke

(DUK:NYSE) overcharged electric utility customers there for years. In fact, the regulators determined that Duke had been understating profits that, with recommended accounting changes, would still have fallen within acceptable limits. The company would have occasionally exceeded its allowed limits in the larger market of North Carolina, however.
