    Problem 1:
    Midnight Hour Inc. has declared a $5.10 per-share dividend. Suppose capital gains are not taxed, but dividends are taxed at 15%. New IRS regulations require that taxes be withheld at the time the dividend is paid. Midnight Hour sells for $83 per share and the stock is about to go ex-dividend. What do you think the ex-dividend price will be?
