Dividend Data

So I would like to make an Algo based on dividend data. The pieces of information I need are:

Declared Date (the date the dividend amount/date was made public)
Dividend Amount (the actual dollar amount - not percentage - of the dividend)
Ex Dividend Date
Pay Date (the date the money actually hits the account)

How would I go about getting this data? I'm very new to this system and any help would be appreciated!

Hi Justing,

You can find 2 examples of getting ex dividend date and dividend amount in this thread: https://www.quantopian.com/posts/tactical-bond-strategy

Hi Justing,
I am the founder at EventVestor, with a single focus on corporate events data sets covering over 80 distinct event types. We do have dividend data with all the dates and dividend amounts. We also annotate each the dividend event to indicate dividend changes - increase, decrease, initiation, suspend, regular, special dividend etc. Contact us through this form http://www.eventvestor.com/contactus.php?quantopian or email me at [email protected].
