Top Texas Tech Tax Expert Talks on “Stock Market Capitalization of Dividend Taxes”

February 18, 2002

ALBUQUERQUE – Recent research has hypothesized that the market capitalizes future dividend taxes into share prices regardless of firms’ actual dividend policies. Dr. Robert Ricketts will be addressing this issue among many others in his presentation entitled, “Stock Market Capitalization of Dividend Taxes: Does the Market Assume All Earnings Will Be Paid Out as Dividends?” The Pulakos & Alongi Visiting Scholar Program will host the event.

Ricketts, CPA, also holds a Ph.D., MS, and BS from the University of North Texas, and is the Frank M. Burke Chair in Taxation in the Jerry S. Rawls College of Business Administration at Texas Tech University. He is also the Director of the Texas Tech Tax Institute.

This Executive Speakers Series event is free and open to the public. Nevertheless, the topic and discussion is academic in nature; Ricketts will not be fielding any general questions about taxes. The talk will be held on Friday, March 1 and begins at 1:00 p.m. at The Anderson Schools of Management at UNM, 1924 Las Lomas NE, Room 2082.
