Individuals with foreign dividend paying stocks in their IRA’s or other qualified tax-deferred accounts are not eligible to claim a foreign tax credit because the income is received by a tax-exempt trust and not currently subject to income tax.
Apart from that, the stock's value is dropping like crazy...
At least, I hope, for longs sake, that the bleeding has stopped as it's forming a base in the 10s for the next leg up or down? Who knows!
I see that lots of investors on this forum are very happy to get a dividend and NOT thinking that the principal is disappearing fast. What good is it to get a paltry dividend when the stock drops precipitously?
