I just called SRS and they did said they no longer tell anyone the distribution date till the night before?Does anyone know the sequence of how this is done? I understand they usually announce the ex-dividend date in advance and if you don't own it then, your not stuck with the capital gain.I'm concerned because I heard some Rydex Funds recently got hit with a 87% Distribution on their shorts!!!Ed
I have the same concern and also called Proshares, which was no help at all. I did find an article that mentioned they paid out the distributions on 12/20 last year.
