The Vanguard Total International Stock Index fund (VGTSX) dropped $0.18 (about 1.7%) on 12/24. According to the Vanguard distribution estimates, they expected a $0.19 capital gain distribution to be made on that date. Here it is on 12/29 well after the close of trading, and I have yet to see any record of the distribution posted on the Vanguard site, in Yahoo historical prices, or more importantly, in my brokerage account. Was this drop likely a distribution, or an actual drop in the NAV of the fund? Is there typically a delay between the date the NAV of a fund drops due to a distribution and the date that the dividend is posted?
