Not sure if it will make much difffernce in my investing decisions. I look at it this way, would I rather pay 25% tax on a $1.00 dividend and take home $0.75, or would I rather pay 0% tax on no dividend and take home nothing? I'll take the $0.75 home anyday.

Now what it may change is the way companies pay out the dividend. Can a company keep the 2% dividend cash they payout, invest it in the growth of the company and return 6% in capital returns? That will greatly affect our yeild screens. It could push our yeild screens more into the world of REIT, MLP & LLP companies that are reqiured by law to payout their profits. All together not a really bad place to have a little chunk of your portfolio anyways, I just liked it when the screen would pick a beaten down company that pays a solid dividend along it a MLP or two.
