Re: buying this year and selling next year

Buying is not a taxable event; selling is (other than in the fairly unusual case of short selling). So you won't have any taxable events this year if all your transactions are purchases; thus, you won't have anything to report next year when you do this year's taxes. you are saying "all"....

buying this year and selling next year

Hello
Some of the stocks I bought this year, I am not planning to sell them yet in 2014. May be in 2015 i will sell. So, when I am doing my 2014 taxes next spring, I will do nothing about these stocks yet correct? Because gain or loss will not be realized as of 2014 correct?

Re: dividend yield when stock price change

ok i understand that I used a wrong term. yes I see that I should have said yield on cost... not just yield... so, then, my yield on cost does not change with fluctuating stock price. it remains as the same as the day I bought it for me. which is what I care about. but yield of that stock changes wi...

Re: dividend yield when stock price change

ok so my yield would remain the same for me. but for a person who bought it at a lower price, he would have more yield with same money in comparison to me. in other words, dividend per share will remain the same... and the reason that the 2nd person gets more yield is because he bought more shares t...

meaning of volume

ok of course i read what volume means but number of shares traded how does it compare against other stock, the prices are different in the first place. so it is not apples to apples. for example stock A is $50 and B is $80. so A's volume is higher but it is because it is cheaper too. many big financ...

Re: dividend and yield

dividend and yield

ok basic question i buy a stock for $100 per share and its yield is 5% the stock price goes gown to $90 is my yield still 5%? i assume not because at that point another person who buys for $90 would also expect 5%... so this means if the stock price goes down my yield will also go down right? so my ...

Stock indexes and inflation

I have a basic question. Do those stock indexes include the effect of inflation? in other words, if inflation wasnt there, would the historical shape of stock indexes be the same or different for example? How? or is this too technical?
