How To Deal With Dividend Withholding Tax

Many investors in dividend distributing shares may regrettably have first hand experience with dividend withholding tax. However, in my day-to-day practice as a tax advisor, it is my experience that many investors are not aware that their tax burden can be somewhat relieved. A right to a tax refund may exist due to the workings of an applicable tax treaty between your country of residence and the source country of your dividend income. On average between 40-60% of withholding tax may be eligible for a refund. What is withholding tax? Withholding tax is a type of tax levy that occurs in many countries. Within Europe, basically all major economies apply a withholding tax on dividends distributed to non-resident investors (e.g. France 30%, Germany 26,375%, Switzerland 35%, Sweden 30%, Belgium 25%, and the list goes on). However, between all major countries tax treaties have been concluded that lower the right to tax those dividends for the source... Read more

Should These 3 Grocery Stocks Fill Your Shopping List?

Grocery retailers have an average dividend yield of 3.54%, which is higher than the S&P 500 yield (2.17%). Normally, grocery retailers offer food, general merchandise, health and beauty care, and pharmacy products at competitive prices and their products are of superior quality aiming to attract and retain more customers. In the United States, the trends for the grocery store industry insinuate that consumers are looking for convenience, pushing retailers to expand and invest in fresh produce and foods. This article discusses three grocery retailers, two large-cap and one small-cap, that trade on the NYSE and the Nasdaq. The small cap (Weis Markets) has outperformed the NYSE and its peers 10.67% YTD, whereas the two other companies have experienced losses YTD, like the NYSE Composite Index and the Nasdaq Composite Index.

2 British ADRs With Attractive Dividend Yields

Many stocks of the London Stock Exchange also trade on stock exchanges like the NYSE or NASDAQ in the form of ADRs, offering a great opportunity to U.S. investors to capitalize on growth. ADR stands for American Depositary Receipt and it represents 100% ownership to the foreign company. ADRs trade in over-the-counter (OTC) markets, are issued by U.S. depositary banks and are typically equity rather than debt or money market assets. ADRs can offer high dividends like common U.S shares and their prices mirror the price changes in the foreign market. Of course, as there is always the risk of political events and macroeconomic instability, like a Brexit, one should be able to pick stocks that are offered at a relatively low price, keeping a long-term view. This article discusses two UK ADRs that trade on the NYSE. Their average dividend per share is $1.24, yielding an average dividend yield of 4.04% at an average payout ratio of 54.6%. Although the stocks trade in different... Read more

Mid-Cap REITs With A Dividend Yield Over 5%

Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) allow you to invest in portfolios of large-scale properties by purchasing the relevant stocks. As a REIT stockholder, you can benefit from income investing in the real estate market, without actually owning a finance property. In fact, owning and operating real estate requires thorough knowledge and patience, along with the danger of being highly leveraged and illiquid. This means that you cannot sell your property immediately for cash, plus you have to be able to evaluate your property and know how to calculated an annual return on investment. On the other hand, REITs offer you the benefits of owning equity through purchasing on the stock market. This article discusses three mid-cap REITs that trade in the REIT - Healthcare Facilities Industry. All three stocks trade on the NYSE, on average 5% lower than their 52w-high (EPR Properties is currently trading at it’s 52w highest price). Their average dividend yield is 6.19% at an... Read more

3 Top Canadian ADRs for Growth

There are many Canadian stocks that trade both on the NYSE (as ADRs) and the Nasdaq stock markets. Mind you, that a single ADR may represent a group of foreign shares held by the bank. If dividends are issued in the company’s country of operation, in this case Canada, the dividends will be deposited in the bank, and will be converted to U.S. dollars before they are distributed to the ADRs holders. Another thing you need to know is that tax treatment of ADRs is the same as U.S.-listed securities, except if there are foreign withholding taxes for income distributions, such as dividends or sale proceeds.
