I love Halloween. My favorite holiday. The pandemic changed it a lot, but still fun. My kid was in top form!
I was a male Billie Eilish. I will spare you the look....
But I can't believe there are only 2 months left in this year. 2021 can't come fast enough. 2020 sucked eggs.
But for dividend income, 2020 was not too awful. A couple of cuts were expected, but once dealing with that, things have stabilized.
Wasn't the biggest month, but have a good base to grow on. Even with the $689.99 in dividends I earned last month, I still average over $1,000 per month overall. That's the important thing.
Normally, the first month of each quarter, I was earning a massive dividend from Whitehorse Finance (WHF). They had sustained massive losses and their dividend payout ratio was totally unsustainable for my comfort level. It was by far my largest holding so I faced the reality of getting out before a dividend cut and a huge hit to the equity value.
The result was a loss of $431 for this month's dividend. The positive was that the other months are much larger from the reinvestment of the WHF shares.
Here's the breakdown: 21 payments for $689.89
