Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

interesting point.  If you have held the shares more than 12 months the gains would be long term, taxed at 15%, which is the same as the long term gain tax.  However, if you held them less than 12 months, the tax is your ordinary income tax, which is as high as 35%--talking Federal tax only.
 Dividends paid in shares are taxed just like cash, so there's no real advantage to a share dividend, and therefore you don't see many of them.
