I would like to analyze dividend cut announcements and their impact on stock prices. Is this data available in WL. I assume there could be cash dividend changes in the fundamental data.

Also very important, does this data get posted on the same day as the announcement?

Look at the QuickRef example for FundamentalDataItems. Use "dividend" for the item, which is the dividend per share. The next dividend is most often available a week or more before the ex date.
