Next 2014 SPY, VOO, IVV Ex-Dividend Dates and Estimated Dividends

Friday, December 26th, 2014 | Vance Harwood

SPY went ex-dividend Friday, December 19th declaring a dividend of $1.134920 per share—$924 million in cash will be distributed on January 30th.   Yes, SPDR does take its time paying out.  VOO and IVV’s ex-dividend dates were December 18th and the 24th.

SPY is the largest ETF in the world, currently with $183 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 $67 billion and $25 billion in assets.  The table below summarizes dividend information for SPY, IVV, and VOO—the three biggest S&P 500 index ETFs.  Vanguard only publishes ex-dividend dates a few days prior to the event itself, so the dates for VOO are just estimates.

Ticker Next Ex-dividend Next Pay date Sept. Dividend Dec Dividend
SPY 19-Dec-2014 30-Jan-2015  $0.939 $1.13492
IVV 24-Dec-2014 31-Dec-2014  $0.934 $1.10322
VOO 18-Dec-2014 24-Dec-2014  $0.876 $1.026

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.
