  • BCE Inc. Dividend Fact Sheet [View article]
    True DOOWOP regarding difference in value between USA currancy vs Canadian currency .. but I don't mind the Canadian dividend taxes we pay!! YOUR GET USA TAX CREDIT FOR ANY CANADIAN DIVIDEND TAXES YOU PAY. We have reciprocal tax agreement w/ Canada regarding this issue.

  • BCE Inc. Dividend Fact Sheet [View article]
    Well written, in easy terms to understand. A minor thing ...The small "boxes" under the Graphs could be larger. I couldn't really read them.

  • Holly Energy: Moving Ahead With Pipeline Expansion [View article]
    Hep is a LP and gives an "Ordinary Div" Which means I have to pay more taxes and those dividends mostly it counts as increased income for me (NOT GOOD). The "Qualified Div" of HFC is a tax of 15% (or in my case 20% ?? ) . I do have few LP's and MLPs but not many.
    but thanks for the input.

    PS as an aside..I've been buying some KMR (the brother of KMP) which gives a "dividend value " the same as KMP but in shares of KMR. Those KMR "shares dividends" decreases your cost per shares of KMR so that when it hits "long term"you could sell shares and pay 15% on the long term gain of you dividend, and stock. Just an idea ..Dave
    PPS Have tax laws % changed again?? So maybe my % are a bit off but the practice is the same .. less taxes more gain in my pocket

  • The Only Reason For Automatic Dividend Reinvestment [View article]
    With Ameritrade as my broker, I have a free "Gains Keeper" . Gain Keeper also keeps track of all my tax positions, short term and long term dates of purchases and sales .. $ gains and losses on each stock etc, All at no charge. They also give a complete tax picture (sans LLP and LP's) at year end.. Of course Ameritrade charges $10./ transaction( buy or sell) but no charge for their DRIP program. It's more than the $4 "Dividend Growth Investor" pays, but It's worth it to me.

  • High Yielding Kinder Morgan Should Yield More Soon [View article]
    Yes Fred I agree. I own all 3 in my personal stock (for tax purposes), acct which is NOT sheltered! KMP is my smallest in that acct.and shrinking. (Ihave 28 different stocks in my Acct)
    In several of my 7 grand kids "old fashion "Coverdal" SPL??) accounts I have some in KMP and others in KMR. KMR does NOTgive partial shares as dividends ONLY full shares w/cash payment for the remainder of the dividend. BUT Ameritrade gives partial shares of KMP with the DRIP program which I use for the younger grand children. It's sounds complicated,but it works. LOL

  • High Yielding Kinder Morgan Should Yield More Soon [View article]
    I have positions in all 3 of the K's ..for the long term and for grand kids I've invested more weight in KMR, which you haven't mentioned in your article. The KMR price is a discounted more than ($79.83-74.49 as of 12/24) $5.340 to KMP and gives a stock dividend of $5.40/shr (same as KMP's cash dividend). Therefore the dividend for KMR is effectively 7.25% vs KMP 6.8%. For the long term and in Tax sheltered accts KMR is "no brainer" for sure buy!
    LONG ALL 3 KMI, KMP, AND KMR ..

  • Rockwell Medical - Consensus Says It Goes Over $19 [View article]
    Here's a (bad) thought .. Baxter does a lotof dialysis treatment plus Equipment and supplies! Plus I think home dialysis equipment in the US and Europe. I sure hope they don't make a play toward Rockwell ... such as Cubist made on TSRX. The LOW price buy out of TSRX by Cubist at $13.50 was a great disappointment to a lotof TSRX share holders including me!!

  • Why I'm Keeping Vodafone, Selling Issued Verizon Shares, And Substituting AT&T [View article]
    You have to wonder why there is any tax at all? Aren't they giving us the "cash value" back to us of our original investment in VOD? This is not a dividend!
    I sold mine yesterday ... for that reason.
    No VOD in my account
    lol

  • Why I'm Keeping Vodafone, Selling Issued Verizon Shares, And Substituting AT&T [View article]
    Ray I have nothing concrete, but here is quote I read in M*

    "individual holders with shares in taxable accounts will want to consider the tax consequences of Vodafone's upcoming distributions as well."

    If this is the case, and I may assume it is without more info , I may take your advice and sell my VOD now (long term taxes) and for sure NO short term taxes, and buy T NOW since the my saving would be in the form of possible less taxes...besides I'm 42% ahead on VOD now. This will increase my total dollar dividends substantially over waht I now get in cash from VOD.

    I have heard that the cash distribution and VZ stock shares distribution may be taxed at the SHORT TERM RATE even though I own my VOD shares LONG TERM!!!. Do you know of anything about this? Short term taxes will certainly affect my holding the VOD shares until the settlement distributions.
    Long VOD
