As discussed in the text, in the absence of market imperfections and tax effects, we would expect the share price to decline by the amount of the dividend
payment when the stock goes ex dividend. Once we consider the role of taxes, however, this is not necessarily true. One model has been proposed that
incorporates tax effects into determining the ex-dividend price:

Here
P
O
is the price just before the stock goes ex,
P
X
is the ex-dividend share price,
D
is the amount of the dividend per share,
T
P
is the relevant marginal
personal tax rate on dividends, and
T

is the effective marginal tax rate on capital gains.

Suppose the only owners of stock are corporations. Recall that corporations get at least a 70 percent exemption from taxation on the dividend income
they receive, but they do not get such an exemption on capital gains. If the corporation’s income and capital gains tax rates are both 40 percent, what
does this model predict the change in the ex-dividend share price will be?
