CAPS will very soon be supporting regular dividend payments (I thought we were getting them with the last release, but I was incorrect). As long as you hold a stock by the Ex-Dividend date, then you should receive the dividend. CAPS handles this by adjusting the cost basis of your pick.

Just a nit -- you shouldn't be adjusting the cost basis, you should be adjusting the return. If a $100 stock pays a $99.99 dividend and it still trades at $100, the return should be 200% not 10000%. if you adjust the cost basis you can get some absurd results
