Re: when is vanguard next dividends date?

Go to Vanguard's website. Look up the fund you are interested in. Click on the distribution tab (or whatever it is called). Look at the historical payout dates.

Re: Where are Vanguard declared dividends posted?

how do you read the dividend? for example let say you have $100k in vtip etf and on the chart it said it is pays quarterly for $0.05200. so how much does it pay in dividends if you have $100k in vtip? thx in advance.

Re: Vanguard mutual fund vs etf

I would not use Scottrade because they charge commissions when many other brokers do not charge commissions. I think that link that rickmerrill posted should be helpful if you read it. i'm not too bother with $7/trade for etf on my scottrade account. i'm more concern on expense ratio and allowing t...

Re: can some1 explain the benefit of not reinvesting dividen

let's say you don't do tax loss harvesting. if you don't auto reinvest in your dividends and too lazy to rebalance your portfolio or keep track of what to buy from your dividends 1 time each year, won't it defeat the purpose of letting your money work hard for you? i just want to look at my portfoli...

Its not filing taxes but effectively managing your cost basis, lot identification for loss harvesting and asset allocation that is made difficult by automatic dividend reinvestment.

Re: can some1 explain the benefit of not reinvesting dividen

You can use the money for rebalancing. If you are in the phase of life where you need to consume income, you can use the money for income.

Re: can some1 explain the benefit of not reinvesting dividen

Read up Tax loss Harvesting(TLH) and Wash Sales. Automatic Reinvesting of dividends might prevent you from doing TLH due to a wash sale.
