    If IBM Announce one time special divident!!!

    With the number of companies moving their dividend payments from 2013 to 2012, looks like the taxes that the government expects will come up short in 2013. The taxes the the government will loose in 2013 has got to be close to a billion. Now the companies are looking to do away with the dividends all together for the next 4 years and just do stock buybacks. The tax lose for that has got to be billions of dollars.
