VTI and VXUS dividends

Post by TG2 » Sat Dec 30, 2017 12:00 am

Knowing that a lot of people here hold these two, I figure it's probably a good place to ask....

Looking at Vanguard's site, both VTI and VXUS had a distribution recently. The record (12/22), ex-dividend (12/21), and payable dates (12/27) show the same for both. I bought both in October, but the account is not held at Vanguard. The VTI dividends were reinvested and showed up in my account on the 27th. I still do not show a transaction for the VXUS dividend, either as a dividend reinvestment or as a cash deposit to the account. Being that this is the first distribution since I have owned these two, I am wondering if there is a problem or mixup somewhere. Have others received the dividends for both and had them show up in your account, or is there maybe a delay on VXUS for some reason? Any ideas?

Check a few hours after midnight - or better - after 9am tomorrow morning. VXUS should settle at the same time as VTI, but it takes at least some time for your brokerage/provider to crank the numbers.

Yeah, but three days or more? For one but not the other? Seems strange in today's world.

My VXUS dividends were paid to my Scottrade taxable account on 12/27 and reinvested the same day.
My VTI dividends were paid to and reinvested in my Ally Roth brokerage the same day, 12/27.

Yeah, that's what I figured. Looks like I have a phone call to make. Thanks.
