It is the same political trick like in Canada. They scare you with tax increase. Now, CNBC is talking about dividend tax might go from 15% to 45% or will it?
Some small guys got scare and sell their portfolio. In the mean time moneyed funds are buying.
Then the tax increase comes out at 20% (say) and everyone think it is GREAT (because they were conditioned to think 45%). Market jumps subsequently.
In the end, tax will go up but you will be (very) happy that it goes up less than you thought...lol.
If I were RIM, I would encourage manufacturers to start to look into making phones and tablets in Canada with robots. Apparently, robot costs about $20K each. Get this, robots can work in the dark and around the clock, How green is that.
