Next 2016 SPY, VOO, IVV Ex-Dividend Dates and Estimated Dividends

Updated: May 23rd, 2016 | Vance Harwood
 

SPY’s next ex-dividend date is Friday, June 17th, 2016.  I’m predicting a dividend of $1.18 / share.   The distribution payout will be on July 29th.  The two other big S&P 500 ETFs, VOO and IVV go ex-dividend a few days later—IVV on the 21st and VOO on the 24th (estimated).  VOO and IVV are much faster to  distribute the dividends—both pay out within a week of their ex-dividend dates.  IVV and VOO reinvest dividends from their underlying stocks until the payout date arrives.  SPY is restricted by its Unit Investment Trust legal structure to hold dividends in cash until they are paid out.

SPY is the largest ETF in the world, currently with $179 billion in assets under management.  The next two largest ETFs that track the S&P 500 are iShare’s IVV and Vanguard’s VOO—currently with $70 billion and $35 billion in assets.  The table below summarizes dividend information for SPY, IVV, and VOO.  Vanguard only publishes ex-dividend dates a few days prior to the event itself, so future dates for VOO are just estimates.

Ticker Next Ex-dividend Next Pay date March  Dividend June Dividend
SPY 18-Mar-2016 29-Apr-16   $1.0496   $1.18 (est.)
IVV 23-Mar-2016 30-Mar-16 $1.11123  $1.24 (est.)
VOO 21-Mar-2016 28-Mar-16 $1.006   $1.13 (est.)


You only have to buy a stock or ETF the day prior to its ex-dividend date to be eligible for the dividend.  You can sell on the ex-dividend date if you want and still collect the dividend when the distribution / pay date arrives.  Be aware that  in a flat market the stock or ETF at opening on its ex-dividend date will typically drop in value by the dividend amount.  See Top 10 questions on Dividends if you have more questions.
