FWIW, this appears to be one of the 'good' choices for holdng in a retirement account as the recent dividend pay-out was not subject to any taxes from the company's home country. (at least for me, in my account at Fidelity, and for someone in the USA)

While this is not exactly breaking news, reinvesting dividends so that you begin earning 'interest on your interest' has been shown to be the most consistently strong wealth builder for individual investors. The move to purchasing individual stocks as part of a 401k or IRA, AND the move toward global investing has greatly changed employee retirement plans, even compared to just 10 or 15 years ago. Careful research and planning is necessary to maximize the benefits of dividend reinvestment in the current world of retirement plan investing.
