Investors’ Payout-form Preference and Taxes
We find the form of U.S. corporate cash payout to shareholders often relevant to share price and in different directions at different times. Regularly cash-dividend paying firms have a significant share price premium compared to regularly stock-repurchasing firms in the early 1970s, but this premium exhibits a significant general negative trend and turns into a discount in the mid-to-late 2000s. Also, the premium (discount) is significantly related to the time-series changes in the differential tax burden on dividends and long-term capital gains. It is not related to the excess market return.
