Where is info on date of record for Vanguard funds?

Where can I find the information on (mostly Vanguard) or Fidelity funds that shows the date you have to own the investment to get the year end capital gains and the quarterly dividends.?
I looked for it on my statements and just can't see it in plain sight I imagine.

For Vanguard historical dates, you can find them at links like:

https://investor.vanguard.com/mutual...ibutions/vfiax

Change the mutual fund name at the end of the link for others. There is also https://investor.vanguard.com/mutual.../distributions which apparently lists them all together.

For future quarterly dates, it seems that Vanguard doesn't publish them ahead of time. Not that I've been able to find, anyway. But most of the time you can look at the past distribution history above to guess within a couple of days.

Closer to the end of the year Vanguard will publish estimated YE distributions, but the link can be hard to find. Usually someone else finds it and publishes it here.

Can't say for Fidelity.

...

Note that you typically don't want to "buy the dividend", see the bottom of:

Thanks for that page. You would think it would be something more available and consistent.
I am overweighted in stocks right now. I usually don't do any adjustments at this time of year but I am thinking of dropping one stock fund and reducing another balanced fund since I don't think the bond side is going to hold up in a unsettled situation either.
Maybe I will just keep busy building my wall of beans and rice in my dining room and not do any changes until I get into February.

Good luck with the portfolio and food decisions.

I don't do the tactical rebalancing stuff, but a lot here seem to. Maybe one of them will chime in.
