Yes but I'm curious....assuming you are a US resident don't you still have to pay the 15% non-resident tax on the dividends even though you are buying it on the US stock exchange? So the 4% diidend becomes 3.4%. And if your foreign income withheld already exceeds $600 for married filing jointly you can't can't recoup that.
I read most of your posts going back a month or two. I get a sense, like myself, you are incensed about living in a country run by the criminally insane and or their lapdogs. But a line that's always stuck with me from a book by Robert Anton Wilson said: If you can see THEM its not THEM. And while you can observe their trading patterns and can benefit from riding their coattails it still leaves the question who are "THEY"( if there is a "THEY") and how did they acquire so much power and control. I'm not sure that money is the whole answer though the actions of our totally incompetent and corrupt government would seem to suggest otherwise. Any thoughts?
