Anything I own that pays interest or a dividend is a pure and simple accident; thus I don't pay any attention in this department.

When it comes to purchasing equities; I try (but I'm not always successful) to purchase longer term equities in taxable accounts as a beginning bias. As an example, I do allocate a portion of total portfolio to dogs of the dow & hold these guys 12 months & one day. I do make all of these purchases in a taxable account to obtain the LTCG treatment.

Beyond, this I really don't care. Needless to say, all of my stock picks always start out as winners.
