Many a corporation last week reported its 1929 results. In almost every case the expectation of big gains over 1928 was justified, leaving stockholders only 1930 over which to worry. Notable statements included:
Cities Service Co. (Controls 30 oil, 60 public utility companies): $29,591,000 in 1929 as against $22,876,755 in 1928.
Freeport Texas Co. (Controls with Texas Gulf Sulphur Co. three-fourths of world sulphur supply): $4,085,000 as against $3,275,000.
Indiana Limestone Co. (To whose Board went Col. Robert W. Stewart after his ousting from Standard Oil of Indiana): $10,000 as against $430,000.
