Marix Group Total Return Indices - Check It Out!Dear Capital Exchange Shareholders:
For those of you looking for additional independent information about listed companies and their performance, I recommend you check out the following link:
Marix Group (MRG) is a land rentals company, but the CEO Marishka Ixito knows a thing or two about Second Life finance. She has developed a "Total Return Index" for many listed companies at Capital Exchange. I'll use the definition from Investopedia.com to explain exactly what that is:
"A type of equity index that tracks both the capital gains of a group of stocks over time, and assumes that any cash distributions, such as dividends, are reinvested back into the index. Looking at an index's total return displays a more accurate representation of the index's performance. By assuming dividends are reinvested, you effectively have accounted for stocks in an index that do not issue dividends and instead, reinvest their earnings within the underlying company."
I hope you find the information useful. Thank you.
CEO and Majority Shareholder
