The Rouse Co. yesterday reported its earnings before noncash charges soared to $94.7 million last year, a more than 20 percent gain that shattered a record set in 1993.Officials of the Columbia-based real estate concern attributed the gain to continued surges in both rental income and occupancy rates in its core retail portfolio, which accounts for roughly 96 percent of its earnings.The performance prompted Rouse's 10-member board to boost its quarterly dividend to 20 cents a share, a 17.6 percent increase that will require the company to pay more than $38 million in annual dividends this year.

A BILL introduced into Congress this month would revolutionize the way mutual fund gains are taxed, but it was virtually ignored by the media and remains almost entirely unknown by the public. That's because no one thinks the legislation will pass, at least not during this Congress.

Higher rents, profitable land sales and the generally buoyant economy helped to propel Columbia-based Rouse Co.'s profit substantially higher in the second quarter, the company said yesterday.Rouse's profit before depreciation and deferred taxes soared 53 percent for the three months ended June 30, to $45.4 million, compared with the same period last year. Financial analysts generally ignore depreciation in real estate companies' results because it subtracts paper value from properties whose worth is often rising.
