Are you getting the same dividend check amount?

November 17, 2008 – Comments (5)

A question I had to answer for a buddy the other day. He was complaining that his dividend check was not the same amount as before, although he had the same number of shares. It boiled down to the fact  the stock was a Canadian company, well everybody has seen the odd occurence of the US $ increasing while other currencies are losing ground. Therefore, his dividend is worth less than before. Here is the funny part. He lost a substantial amount of money from the stock going down and he didn't even flinch.....he was just pissed about losing a hundred bucks compared to losing thousands. Watch those dividends!  [more]
