Shareholders of the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (NYSEARCA:SPY) receive quarterly dividends.
When does the SPY ETF pay a dividend?
These ETFs that pay out quickly are unique. Dividends are paid semi-annually, quarterly, or once a year by the great majority of ETFs (over 2,000).
However, receiving dividends more frequently can help compensate for dropping yields in the S&P 500 and beyond. According to S&P Global Market Intelligence, the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY), which pays quarterly, yields just 1.4 percent, down from 1.54 percent a year ago and 1.97 percent five years ago. The iShares Core U.S. Aggregate Bond ETF (AGG), which pays a monthly dividend, has a yield of 1.8 percent, down from 2.5 percent a year ago.
“People appreciate getting what they’re due as soon as possible,” said a SoFi representative, referring to the SoFi Weekly Dividend ETF (WKLY), which was launched in May. “Because many of our members are newer investors, a regular dividend keeps them engaged and reminds them of why they bought in the first place (cash flow and growth),” says the CEO.
Vanguard, do ETFs pay dividends?
The majority of Vanguard exchange-traded funds (ETFs) pay dividends on a quarterly or annual basis. Vanguard ETFs focus on a single sector of the stock market or the fixed-income market.
Vanguard fund investments in equities or bonds generally yield dividends or interest, which Vanguard distributes as dividends to its shareholders in order to maintain its investment company tax status.
Vanguard offers approximately 70 distinct exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that specialize in specific sectors, market size, international stocks, and government and corporate bonds of various durations and risk levels. Morningstar, Inc. gives the majority of Vanguard ETFs a four-star rating, with some funds receiving five or three stars.
What exactly is the distinction between SPY and VOO?

These five companies, out of a total of 500, account for roughly 20% of the fund’s entire assets. The top five holdings have slightly different proportions, but the funds are almost identical.
