You obviously don't know anything about qualified dividends. Ask your tax man or woman about them. Your dividends will certainly be qualified on your tax return this year. Holding a stock for a year has nothing to do with qualified dividends. You are thinking of long term and short term holding on stock sales.
I don't get it. Why the big sell off today since this stock goes ex-dividend tomorrow. And the dividends are qualified dividends on tax returns bringing about a lower tax rate. Oh, well, not much in this market that I do understand lately.
