    Why do you people always leave out the fact that VGR has paid a 5% stock dividend in September of every year for the last 3 or more years? If you count that in, the true annual dividend rate is about 13%.

     

    I realize the special dividend is not a guaranteed thing, but neither are most of the regular dividends that you show other companies as paying. And VGR has represented that they will keep paying the special dividend for at least the near future.

     

    And VGR has also restated a significant portion of its regular dividend as ROC (Return of Capital) around November of each year for the last couple of years. It is a bother to file the required 1040-X, but entirely worth that bother if you receive more than a few hundred dollars from them. In that way. you defer taxes on that money until you sell it, or never if you still have it when your estate is probated!!!!!!

    Miz -- stop lurking and start selling some (all) of that VGR you're hoarding.

    No chance! I like sitting back and collecting my dividends and the extra shares every year. :)
