January 2021 Dividends

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.

Looks like I have some stocks to buy if I want to see a higher dividend amount for January of 2022. I still have decided if I'm changing brokerages yet. I'll keep you posted.
