Charlotte, NC, March 22, 2012 — Alpha Theory™ founder and CEO, Cameron Hight, will be featured on Fox Business News’ “Countdown to the Closing Bell” on Thursday, March 22nd at 3:20pm.

Cameron has written extensively about the tax inefficiency of issuing dividends (http://blog.alphatheory.com/2010/07/dividend-policy-article-with-dr-laffer.html).

“Dividends by their nature are not bad,” says Cameron Hight, CEO of Alpha Theory. “They are used to return cash to shareholders when there is a lack of positive expected return investment opportunities available for the company’s excess cash. The issue with dividends is that they are tax inefficient when compared to buybacks. Dividends and buybacks simply move value from one account to another so no value is created for shareholders. However dividend payments destroy 15% of value because there is a transfer tax of 15%.”

This will be Cameron’s second appearance on “Countdown to the Closing Bell.” In his last interview he discussed the “8 Mistakes Money Managers Make and How to Fix Them.”
