The Shanghai Gold Exchange has delayed plans for a platinum contract after failing to gain political clearance, threatening a push to open up a market for the precious metal dominated by the arm of a big state-owned company. The SGE had been due to launch a two-way cash-settled contract — enabling users to sell and buy platinum — in the first quarter but it failed to win approval, according to two people familiar with the exchange. The failure highlights the difficulties of reforming China’s domestic commodity markets, where state-owned companies hold sway.
If regular dividends are the bread and butter of income investors, then special dividends are the icing on the cake, making the investment that much sweeter. These "one-time" payouts are used for several reasons ... and occasionally, they are paid out more than just one time.Companies sometimes pay special dividends to share windfall profits, either from exceptional earnings or a gain on an asset sale, with investors. However, other stocks will use special dividends consistently as a way of supplementing a modest regular dividend with income based on their operational results. These distributions can swell in boom times and recede during tighter years.Special dividends frequently fly under investors' radar because financial databases don't track them well. They're not included in calculating dividend yield, because they're not regular programs. But these payouts are cash all the same and can add significantly to shareholder wealth - in some cases they increase the annual yield several times over.Here are 14 stocks with special dividends to watch. Not all of them are buys at the moment. But given past precedent and current financial standing, the potential for more special dividends is in the cards, making them all stocks to put on your radar. In many cases, these stocks pay regular distributions as well. SEE ALSO: 33 Ways to Get Higher Yields (Up to 12%!)

The bourse is publishing the CME Fresh Bacon Index to provide price transparency for pork packers, processors, wholesalers and retailers, CME said in a statement Monday. U.S. wholesale prices for pork bellies, the cut used to make bacon, climbed this year as the deadly African swine fever virus decimated hog herds in China, the top hog producer and pork consumer. “As consumer tastes have evolved, bacon is now in demand year-round,” Fred Seamon, CME’s executive director of agricultural research and product development, said in the statement.
CyrusOne Inc. last year sued the city of Aurora, Illinois, and a company called Scientel Solutions LLC to block Scientel from erecting the structure. The parties settled the dispute through mediation, according to a Friday update to the case’s docket in federal court in Chicago. CyrusOne had argued the tower that Aurora authorized would obstruct its own wireless-communications tower and ruin its plan to ensure traders have fairer access to CME Group Inc.’s derivatives market, which is based out of CyrusOne’s data center in the city about 35 miles west of downtown Chicago.
