easy eough to search for the ETFs ith DYs. Under the "sector is:" select Exchange Traded Funds.
Trick is most ETFs have modest DYs as that's were they take the fees from. PREFTX is the only above 3% albeit th eproperty ETFs are not reflecting in the search because they have incorrect DYs on the system. PTXTEN has DY around 4.4% buy system says 0.5%?!
And your answer is of course the point. However - and here is the catch - while the rates create a positive tax arbitrage for all but about 1000 people (?) in this country - the question is - for how long. So I think that
it is risky to plan on the assumption that that benefit will endure.....But its still a factor for the long term investor...who is willing to hold and sell. But then again maybe next year it won't be..??
Given the uncertain finances of the country tax planning is not an optional extra. SIGH.
Perhaps the other question that has to be overlayed on this - is a personal "what is the impact of tax on dividends for me vs the impact of CGT on a sale of shares?"
The question being - how best after tax to realize "an income".
