Thank you very much, Jim! I always appreciate your advice and have benefited a lot from it. I have a relatively nice tax situation in Hong Kong - no capital gains, dividend or interest income taxes (more specifically, individual income taxes are only imposed on explicitly earned income). I therefore try to pay attention to taxes to other countries while investing. Singapore is an option I have not considered much while investing in dividend stocks and is something I should probably explore. I have a few Brazil stocks (BSBR, VALE) but never managed to understand the dividend taxation in my Ameritrade account. Most of the dividend seems to be taxedat 15% but some part is left untaxed. I never got around to figuring it out as the amounts involved are quite small. I have used the put writing strategy (inspired by your posts but probably implemented in a different manner) but usually do so close to ATM - deep ITM would indeed essentially be owning the stock. How often would you roll over the puts? (I now use interactive brokers for my options.)
