Becky's Blurbs: Looking for Dividend Announcements

Occasionally, we get a question about when dividends are announced by companies. One way is to search the Wall Street Journal database (via Proquest)

Click the Advance Search tab.
Type the words Stocks Ex-Dividend in the citation box. Choose Document Title from dropdown menu.

Type company name in next box. Choose Document Text from drop down menu.
Click Search button.

You will get a list of announcements. Each announcement lists the company alphabetically, followed by the amounts of the dividends and any footnotes that accompany it. The company you seek will be included in that list.

As always, happy searching!
