Why You Should Buy Stocks with a High Tax Rate

If you are looking for a short term speculation or a long term investment, you may want to look for stocks that are currently paying a high tax rate. Why?

According to the Tax Policy Institute, President-Elect Donald Trump has proposed a substantially reduced rate of 15% for corporations. What that means for stocks is that if companies are currently paying taxes at a high rate, they will benefit significantly from tax savings that will flow to the bottom line.

Surprisingly there are some companies that have a tax rate in excess of 60% (e.g. Amazon (AMZN)), according to a report by Wallet Hub. This includes state taxes.

Here are some of the hight overall tax bracket stocks, which may warrant further investigation.

Comcast (CMCSA) 37.1%

Home Depot (HD) 36.4

Norfolk Southern (NSC) 36.3%

Altria (MO) 35.1%

Verizon (VZ) 34.9%

Emerson Electric (EMR) 34.3%

Do your homework and your own due diligence. Hopefully, a corporate tax break with benefit your portfolio.
