Rich Will Not Abandon Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Sunday, December 16, 2012 | | 1 comments »

WHO ARE THE RICH? First an apology for using the term "rich." Because this is about pending tax policy, we are using the Washington D.C. working definition of rich. You know - the movement that began with soak Warren Buffett and Bill Gates, because billionaires don't pay enough and actually want to pay more - the soak the billionaires movement that quietly became the soak the millionaires movement, that morphed into soak the rich, who we find are those couples who make $250,000 per year or more (and singles who make $200,000 per year or more).

Those who fear that dividend stocks will collapse due to the scheduled increase of dividend taxes to the ordinary rate are most likely wrong, because the impact is far less on the rich (as defined above) and far less overall than the surface numbers suggest. FIRST, only about 1/2 of all dividends are earned by individual taxpayers. SECOND, about only 60% of all dividends earned by individuals were earned by those in the rich category.
