    We just doubled checked the dividend history for AVB. Here is the official dividend history.

    It looks like our data provider missed one of the payments on 12/24/08. There was a special dividend on 12/24/2008.

    12/24/08 12/29/08 12/17/08 1/29/09 0.8925 Quarterly
    12/24/08 12/29/08 12/17/08 1/29/09 1.8075 Special
    10/1/08 10/3/08 9/18/08 10/15/08 0.8925 Quarterly
    6/26/08 6/30/08 6/16/08 7/15/08 0.8925 Quarterly
    3/28/08 4/1/08 2/5/08 4/15/08 0.8925 Quarterly

    This will be fixed shortly.

  • ITGOW Part 2: Why I Added McDonald's To My DRiP [View article]
    The Delivery Guy and ordonezo have this exactly right. YCharts shows the full value of the dividend to be paid as of the ex-dividend date.

    The original chart shows annual dividends up to 2007 (one point per year), then quarterly dividends thereafter - just as many commenters have suggested.
