Re: Help the novice: VSS divs 'quarterly’ but no divs?

My position is correct As is mine. There is a lack of consistency. I should not have to decide which information, when both are presented by vanguard, is superior. They should be in concert and they are not. They should declare a dividend of 'zero' if the intend to continue to purport they distribu...

Yes they are but only you introduced the word "always". I posted quotes from vanguard.

'Are' and 'generally are' are different, aren't they?

Re: Help the novice: VSS divs 'quarterly’ but no divs?

This is consistent?

"Distributions for this fund are scheduled
Quarterly"

"Income dividends generally are"


Yes or no?

Re: Help the novice: VSS divs 'quarterly’ but no divs?

Actually, you did read the memo. There is no anticipated dividend announced. Or were you expecting a separate memo from the one you have already read? VSS not included in the Q1 '13 "your fund declaring a dividend" article I want the memo that said "quarterly dividends if we feel lik...

Re: Help the novice: VSS divs 'quarterly’ but no divs?

I don't have a time machine, so let's wait and see what happens. And the nice part is, since the NAV drops when the dividend is paid, you really don't need to know except for planning your taxes if this is a taxable account. au contraire Divs are the first line of rebalancing taxable or no.

The paradox - 'quarterly' dividends articulated in the literature and at vanguard.com.

VSS not included in the Q1 '13 "your fund declaring a dividend" article.

Re: Help the novice: VSS divs 'quarterly’ but no divs?

You are missing a time machine. You need to travel to the future to see the next dividend which has no chance of appearing before the end of Q1 '13. *Removed snark* I'm inquiring about the upcoming Q1 '13 div. Go look at VWO distributions tab *snark removed* and you see this as the most recent entr...

Help the novice: VSS divs 'quarterly’ but no divs?

Vanguard web page shows 'quarterly' divs for VSS but there isn't anything more recent on the disto tab than Q4 '12. Did I miss the memo?

Re: I finally peeked at part of my account

Thank you EmergDoc I appreciate the response. Perhaps that last statement was crass. Allow me to clarify why I deleted the previous posts from the threads that I started. I posted legitimate portfolio related questions in an effort to illicit outside opinions. My SO and I are private and only discus...

Troll? I was merely discussing an issue related to my equity portfolio or so I thought.

Must have had the wrong place.
