Need help in understanding qualified dividends
This is my first post and am looking forward to hearing back.
I am thinking of investing in a taxable account an international mutual fund and want to make sure I am making the right choices. I was thinking of VTIAX (Vanguard Total International Stock index) since it has large, mid,small cap and emerging markets in one fund. The only concern I have is that only 70% of dividends are qualified.
Since this is for a taxable account, should I be looking at funds that have 90-100% qualified dividends? I want to have foreign exposure to large, mid, small and emerging markets, but am not sure if I have to look at multiple funds to do this as long as the qualified dividends are at the higher range.
Would appreciate any help in trying to gain a better understanding and if anyone has any fund choices that might be appropriate.
