Action TV reality series for oil exploration with the famed actors Beaver, Audio, Guru and Ivo and the rest
STOP the low IQ BS of ignoring the exceptions and thus given advice in grave error. Simple questions in life can have simple answers that fit the majority of cases ; BUT the exceptions can ruin folks lives.
By your take a woman can never get pregnant with one single fling since almost all the time one sex event has a low probably of conception
Learning the "exceptions" in life requires thinking
Go seek some professional help and stop giving simple answers in life that can have exceptions
A Dividend can get tagged as non qualified when trapped between a buy sell event. A woman can get pregnant via one single sex event. Maybe these "complex exceptions" are too hard to fathom; thus go seek professional help and stop the wishy washy childish soapbox preaching of simpleton answers to questions that do have great areas.
I think many folks have never seen their dividends being tagged as "non qualified"; thus they gave out a simple answer that fits most all cases, but is wrong if the holding period trap snaps.
The Fidelity example is sort of what I did; I bought a stock; sold a portion of it and the part of the dividend got tagged as "non qualified" for tax purposes. ie one often pays a higher tax on that "non qualified" portion
Note this is only about the dividend; not the cap gain.
Re" I'm not talking about selling the stock, I'm talking about the dividends. And how long you own the stock shouldn't affect the dividend tax rate."
(1)Since 2003, certain dividends known as qualified dividends have been subject to the same tax rates as long-term capital gains, which are lower than rates for ordinary income
(2)Qualified dividends are generally dividends from shares in domestic corporations and certain qualified foreign corporations which you have held for at least a specified minimum period of time, known as a holding period. Another requirement is that the shares be unhedged; that is, there were no puts, calls, or short sales associated with the shares during the holding period.
(3)These dividends are taxable federally at the capital gains rate, which depends on the investor’s modified adjusted gross income (AGI) and taxable income (the rates are 0%, 15%, 18.8%, and 23.8%).
You must have held those shares of stock unhedged for at least 61 days out of the 121-day period that began 60 days before the ex-dividend date.
For certain preferred stock, the security must be held for 91 days out of the 181-day period beginning 90 days before the ex-dividend date.
** 1 to 4 from Fidelity
****OK What can happen is if you buy and sell to quickly; or do special things like hedging the "dividend or part of it can be NON QUALIFIED".
****SEE NOTE (2)'S COMMENT "which you have held for at least a specified minimum period of time, known as a holding period."
"I believe that the company's dividend may soon be cut"
The 19.95 sale probably was an "at the market" sale during the 1000 point dow drop. ie somebody wanted out quickly; at any price, in an instant. Thus the price had to drop radically until enough "low ball cherry pickers :) " had their orders filled.
Where is the " 'IN TWO YEARS"part of the quote? Oh you left if off on your last zillion posts
If one looks back before July 27 2014 the barrel price chart does not show our current slump. Thus how could anybody know that oil would go below 50?
Last week saw some house plans for a McMansion with a mess of useless attic so the house looks bigger. The top section had a 29/12 pitch in the top part and some other had 26/12 and 24/12 pitches. The smallest pitch was 16/12
Here I have bought / nibbled at shares as it has dropped the last month and "been wrong" as to where the bottom is. Anybody can be an expert by looking back at history. The commodity markets across the board have taken a hit
