Goldman, Silver Lake not officially on board with Musk's plan: report
Tesla Inc. Chief Executive Elon Musk hadn't officially tapped Goldman Sachs Group Inc. as its financial advisor when he revealed plans last week to take the car maker private and said he had secured funding for the deal, according to a Bloomberg News report that cited people with knowledge of the matter. The bank still hadn't signed on when Musk tweeted late Monday he was working with Goldman and Silver Lake, the people told Bloomberg. Conversations between Musk and Goldman Sachs representatives are ongoing, the report said. Silver Lake also is in a similar situation, Bloomberg said, citing one person familiar with the matter. Silver Lake isn't officially working for Musk and isn't being compensated, the report said. Musk last week stunned markets by saying he had plans to take Tesla private at $420 a share, and funding was "secured."

5 Stocks That Should Start Paying Dividends
Investors tend to be drawn to hot technology and biotechnology stocks for their growth prospects - not for the cash they return to shareholders. But several well-known tech and biotech stocks could afford to invest in their businesses, buy back their shares and pay dividends, if only they chose to.

When it comes to returning cash to shareholders, corporate management often prefers stock buybacks to dividends because it gives them flexibility. A company can adjust its share repurchases according to business and market conditions. A dividend is a commitment. The market often exacts severe and swift revenge if a company cuts or suspends its payout.

The initiation of a dividend can also be taken as a sign that a company or stock's best days are behind it. A quick look at Apple's (AAPL) performance shows that's not necessarily the case. The company reinstated its dividend in 2012 after a 17-year hiatus. Between price appreciation and payouts, Apple stock has delivered a total return of about 170% since March 2012, when it announced plans to reinstate its dividend later that year - the Standard & Poor's 500-stock index is up about 130% over the same span, including dividends.

The following five stocks don't yet offer dividends, but they should ... and could. Each has the cash-generation ability to start a regular payout without giving up on share repurchases and investments in future growth.
