I received $9.78 in dividends in January of 2021. This amount is 33.24% less than the dividends I received in January of 2020. Lets look into what changed.
In the table below you can see the dividends I received in both January 2020 and January 2021.
- I sold a lot of the monthly dividend stocks I had, since they weren't paying qualified dividends.
- BGS stock is paying their dividend at the beginning of February this year, not the end of January.
- I sold stocks that had headquarters in countries outside of the United States due to the weird taxes it caused when doing my taxes at the end of the year.
