In most cases, that is expected. DivvyDiary only shows the payout when it has been confirmed by the corresponding business. Usually, this happens 1 to 3 months prior to the payment date, but it depends on the individual business or ETF (most ETFs confirm the payout even later). DivvyDiary checks for updates multiple times a day.
If you can't find a business or ETF by searching for its name, try finding it by its symbol or its ISIN (ISIN is the most accurate search critera). If you're still having troubles finding your business or ETF, send us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will do our best to add the missing data to our database.
The dividend paid by your broker depends on different factors (e.g. depository provider, tax rate, tax allowance, withholding tax, location of the company...). By default you will see gross dividends on DivvyDiary. If you wish, you can enter your personal tax rate and tax allowance to get as close as possible to the actual net dividend paid out.
In addition, there may be deviations in the gross dividend paid out due to exchange rate fluctuations. To exclude this you can configure under Settings the display of the payment in the currency of the distributing company.
Dividend payments are not the same as secured interest payments. It can happen at any time that companies cut dividends or even cancel them completely. Since we can't see into the future any more than you can, we don't want to make forecasts on a weekly or monthly basis. So the dividends in the dividend calendar are always confirmed dividends.
On DivvyDiary you will find additional forecasts on an annual basis for the next 12 months. These are marked with FWD. For example, the annual dividend (FWD) of your portfolio and the annual dividend (FWD) for each security.
