MasterCard Inc. (MA), the second-biggest bank-card network
Dakin Campbell and Elizabeth Dexheimer, 10 December 2013

The full quote, from Bloomberg News is:

MasterCard Inc. (MA), the second-biggest bank-card network, said its board of directors approved an 83 percent dividend increase and a 10-for-1 stock split.

Which got us thinking about previous articles on finance and stock prices.

We’ll keep this short.  Here’s a list companies and stock prices mentioned over the years.

3/31/2008* 12/31/2013 $ Increase % Increase Dividends

The current CEO of Hewlett-Packard is Margaret Whitman.  Margaret “Meg” Whitman was the CEO of eBay INC prior to John Donahoe.

Meg Whitman became HP CEO on 22 September 2011.  Here’s the head-to-head during the appropriate time frame.

9/22/2011 12/31/2013 $ Increase % Increase Dividends
