SPY will go ex-dividend Friday, March 15th, 2019 with a dividend I’m estimating to be $1.15 /share (based on historical patterns.)  SPY’s distribution payout will be on April 30th, 2019—yes the SPDR folks take their time delivering the dividend.  I’m estimating Vanguard’s VOO, one of the other two big S&P 500 ETFs, will go ex-dividend on the 13th of March with a dividend of $1.09/ share.  iShares’ IVV, will go ex-dividend on the 20th of March with a dividend of $1.08/ share.
