    Not capital gains... recapture of distributions. Taxed at full rate, not capital gains. Ouch!

  • How General Electric's Buyback Leads To 10% Annual Dividend Growth [View article]
    I watched GE closely since I started with them in 1973 through retirement in 2011. Buybacks never seemed to reduce the share count outstanding. I suspect that your assumption about only offsetting the manager stock awards is the proper explanation. Awards only went to managers & salespeople. I never saw rank and file get any.

  • Why Doesn't The Dividend Growth ETF Grow Its Dividends? [View article]
    Bah! If I buy a dividend growth stock, the dividend grows.
    If I buy this fund, the dividend per share shrinks (for whatever reason.)
    Whether it shrinks because of dilution or because they trade stocks... it still shrinks.
    Kind of goes against the definition of dividend growth. This may be a successful fund for growth & value, but it fails as a dividend growth fund.
