I tried to purchase more shares of PVD through etrade and got the message:"Orders for this security cannot be accepted online at this time."Tried Customer service and they said nothing was wrong. Is this a liquidity issue?
Can anyone explain the foreign stock witholding (tax) on dividends paid in etrade? Not sure if I said that correctly, but close enough. Thanks.
Most countries seem to charge a forign tax on dividends paid outside the country - Chile's appears to be over 20% - I think Brazil and Canada are both 15%You get some back at tax time - but in any case, it's not Etrade, they all deduct it - including Schwab - my two cents on PVD is that it's at a good price for buying right now -
Don't know, bhuman. But with the US markets being so unstable of late, there are worse places to be throwing your money than PVD. Were you finally able to get in?
Interesting! PVD's fundy's and div play look great, but remember this stock is led by a gov't and is subject to the whims of an historically corrupt system. Maybe I'm wrong and there are safeguards in place, but I can't get any news on this stock..
