"As would a dividend, (trigger a tax obligation that is)."He may/may not be an American and many other countries treat dividend income completely differently from capital gains (Canada for example).
<not to mention likely trigger a capital gain/loss>As would a dividend, (trigger a tax obligation that is).Craziest yet imo is buying a special dividend and not qualifying for discounted taxes.If one is buying and waits ex-dividend either buys more or spends less and keeps the difference free of additional taxes.
How about a dividend increase of .04/.08????
