    Ex-distribution dump

    You are watching an ex-divi dump on kmp going ex distribution today. This frequently happens to high yield stocks.....people hold to get that last dividend then sell on the ex-date.

    For a regular stock in a taxable account, selling the day before ex or on the ex date can have tax ramifications.....the amount of a capital gain or loss vs a dividend. But in a partnership, it makes no difference because the distribution reduces tax basis. In a retirement account it makes absolutely no difference, tax-wise.

    Still, lemmings are lemmings. Take advantage of the lemming dumping on the ex date for a bargain.
