Who really cares about the dividend. The stock goes up and down more every day than the dividend they pay. So they give you back your own money and now it is taxable. Big whoop!BTW I am long BBT. I just think people who buy because of a 2.5% dividend don't really know what they are doing.
Like cap gains are not taxable! Short term rate vs. dividend rate ... go get 'em trader.
Gee. I don't think you understand the world of investing. Stock holders are the owners of the company and they are entitled to a fair share of the profits as dividends. They do not give you back your own money.
