    Hey xquestor, dividends are not subtracted from earnings. PBY could pay whatever dividend they wanted and it wouldn't effect earnings whatsoever.

    PBY paid $1.575 million in dividends for the last quarter. It's 3 cents per quarter. It's not the case that if they paid $0 in dividends, that $1.575m would be added to earnings.

    If your talking about cashflow, you're absolutely spot on which is why some investors favor the cashflow statement over the income statement as a better truthteller.
