DIA’s February 2012 Dividend

SPDR’s DIA  Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF went ex-dividend February 17th with a dividend of $0.3315—about 0.25% of its current price of $129.  The dividend will be distributed March 12th.  For DIA’s 2012 dividend calendar see this post.

DIA is currently yielding around 2.3% on an annualized basis.   Unlike most funds that distribute monthly dividends, DIA does not go ex-dividend on the first business day of the month and it has a reasonably priced/liquid options market.  This makes it an interesting candidate for dividend capture schemes.
