The Female Health Company, maker of the latest and greatest female condom, FC2, has announced that a five cent dividend will be released to its shareholders. The dividend, announced today, is not large but if you know anything about finance and investing, you’ll have the impression that they’re making money — even if it’s in bits and pieces — enough to return to their investors! The Female Health Company can be found on the major exchanges and as of January 15th, 2010, the closing price on the stock was $4.72 per share. Almost beats the white out of market-monster AIG’s 52-week-low price of $6.60, which was approximately a year ago at this time. Point: if AIG can rebound over twenty dollars per share in one year in this economy, imagine what the FC2′s parent company can do in a year’s time, too! It’s all about the awareness, people.
What does this mean for women? That this very awareness of the availability of FC2 is on the rise and that women are taking matters into their own hands and protecting the most sacred thing of all: themselves.
