They are the exceptions.

They do this for tax purposes; capital gains taxes until recently were
taxed at a lower rate than the income taxes on dividends (somethin like
38% to 33%) but with the recent Bush Adminstration tax cuts, I believe
MS has paid out a (multi-billion dollar) dividend for the first time in
their history.
