How to determine what % of a Q1 dividend was qualified?

Postby johnanglemen » Fri Apr 05, 2013 2:54 am

OK, so a bunch of funds just paid out dividends for Q1. Now how do I tell what % of these specific dividends were qualified (not the fund's general average)? I thought this would be rather simple information to obtain, but I can't find it anywhere.

One way is to use the percentage of the 2012 full year dividend.
I always wanted to be a procrastinator.

It seems to me that this is determined later about 2 months after the dividend is paid or even later. I have not seen any earlier report than that. So you just have to estimate it.

Also note the 61-day rule.
It's all about short-term opportunistic rebalancing due to a short-term change in one's asset allocation, uh, I mean opportunistic rebalancing, uh I mean rebalancing, uh I mean market timing.
