Will dividend stocks drop soon?



Since the tax rate on dividends will be greater next year, will dividend stocks take a hit?
This assumes the "Bush" tax cuts are not renewed for next year. If they are renewed, then I'd guess dividend stocks would follow the market somewhat.

15% is not going to change. Unless of course, you are the top 1% of wage earners in the entire US.

Everybody on the planet knows about this and has for awhile.

What inclines you to believe that this is not already priced in?

I would think that interest rate sensitivity would be the scariest part from these stocks.

As soon as they go ex-dividend.....the rest is unknown. Remember the death call on muni bonds???

I think that if people are posting this theory on a college football forum, then most likely the large institutions and general investing public know about this risk. But as stock prices go down when people sell off, individual yields rise, which offset the tax concerns.

What the actual tax concerns will be for next year, I'm not sure.

What exactly is changing next year for capital gains taxes? I've read 2.8%, and some as high as 10% more.

Long term capital gains tax rate is already 15% already, no?
