2023 Ex-Div & Dist: VAW, VDE, VGT, VCR, VDC, VHT, VIS, VOX, VTIP

Apparently, Vanguard likes to keep their ETF ex-dividend and distribution dates a secret until just a couple of 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 the previous year’s ex-dividend and distribution dates.   For ex-dividend and pay dates see this  Vanguard link for getting the confirmed dates.
