So you can just as easily sell some shares from a non div payer .I think you are making part of my point. I would rather reallocate excess cash than giving management the opportunity to do so. Management is notoriously bad an reinvesting their own cash (there are always exceptions). There’s no downside to dividends in a tax deferred account.
And selling equities is easy to do in a bull market with healthy gains, not sure it will be as easy in a deep bear market - and if management does not feel comfortable making distributions because they need the cash, then they’ll keep it - otherwise I’ll take that cash dividend and buy whatever is cheapest within my portfolio (i.e., rebalance).
