Go to Yahoo finance
click on vale
go to historical price and click on dividends. You will see that amount and ex-dividend date for the last few years is normally April and October
This information is normally on the Vale website as well
You do not post for almost 2 years and this, is your best comment in 2 years? It is not like he asked you to wash his car, or, pick the fleas off his dog, or, baby sit his 90 year old mother,,,, he asked about the next dividend, maybe, not to actually find out about the dividend, but to put the idea of the coming dividend as a pump for longs. Maybe? OH, could you do some due diligence for me? Thanks in advance.
