Is it better to get in before the break?
But is it worth entering a title near the range to get the generous coupon? The first risk is to be taken advantage of for low affairs of Piazza Affari. One of the 24 Gann Rules It is precisely "never buy to collect a dividend." There is also the factor to consider taxation . “Dividends are rationally calculated from the market and the reversal of the write-off is already discounted. Entering the dividend only tends not to benefit the investor, especially if he or she is a private individual who pays the 26% coupon tax collected since the dividend is a capital income and not a different income. The reduction in stock price of the bond is in total. In theory, therefore, it may be better to enter the coupon deadline.
Much depends on how the action works after takeoff. "The real challenge is to see if the market will reduce the entire quota, something less or something more," emphasizes trader Tony Cioli Puviani.
Another strategic option could even be to sell the stock before the coupon has been posted. An option to consider if the security is priced higher than the current price. The sale of the shares would have the effect of avoiding dividend taxes and accumulating less capital loss. On the other hand, if you are making a profit, the choice of keeping the title or selling it is irrelevant for tax purposes.
