Question

After reading this chapter, it isn't surprising that you're becoming an investment wizard. With your newfound expertise you purchase 100 shares of KSU Corporation for $34.76 per share. Over the next 12 months assume the price goes up to $ 41.43 per share, and you receive a qualified dividend of $0.58 per share. What would be your total return on your KSU Corporation investment? Assuming you continue to hold the stock, calculate your after-tax return. How is your realized after-tax return different if you sell the stock? In both cases assume you are in the 25 percent federal marginal tax bracket and 15 percent long-term capital gains and qualified dividends tax bracket and there is no state income tax on investment income. Your total rate of return on your KSU Corporation investment is nothing%.

Answer #1

P0 = 34.76

P1 = 41.43

D = 0.58

n = 100

Tf = 25%

Tc = 15%

When the stock is sold and gains are realized

Long-term capital gains are taxed at a reduced rate when realized. Short-term capital gains (those held less than or equal to one year) and dividends are always realized and taxed as ordinary income in the year they are paid.

RR = After-tax return on investment = ((*P*1 -
*Po*) (1 - *Tf*) / *Po*) + *C*1(1 -
*Tf*) / *Po*

*=> ((41.43-34.76)*(1-25%))/34.76 + 0.58*(1-25%)/34.76 =
15.64%*

When the stock is held and gains are not realized

RR = After-tax return on investment = ((*P*1 -
*Po*) (1 - *Tc*) / *Po*) + *C*1(1 -
*Tf*) / *Po*

*=> ((41.43-34.76)*(1-15%))/34.76 + 0.58*(1-25%)/34.76 =
17.56%*
