The following video is from Tuesday's Motley Fool Money roundtable discussion, with host Chris Hill and analysts Joe Magyer, James Early, and Ron Gross.

In this segment, the guys discuss coming changes to the dividend tax rates beginning on the first of the year, and what steps a few companies such as Wal-Mart (NYS: WMT) and Wynn Resorts (NAS: WYNN) are taking to be proactive with the dividends they offer ahead of the change. We also hear some thoughts on whether other companies may follow suit in the future.


The retail space is in the midst of the biggest paradigm shift since mail order took off at the turn of last century, and companies such as Wal-Mart are really feeling the new market pressures. Only the most forward-looking and capable companies will survive, and they'll handsomely reward those investors who understand the landscape.
