Apparently, Vanguard likes to keep their ETF ex-dividend and distribution dates a secret until just a couple days before the event. It has that old mutual fund feel to it—”we’ll give you a quote after-market and allow you to buy or sell our stuff at the end of the day, otherwise go away…”
As a result, the dates below are just guesses, based on previous year’s ex-dividend and distribution dates. For ex-dividend and pay dates see this Vanguard link for getting the confirmed dates.
