Hey Guys,

As you know, I'm a 100% ETF investor and one of the things I look forward to every month is when monthly cash distributions get announced from BMO and Vanguard.

I've also compared the February 2020 distributions to January 2020 for a month over month comparison.  You have to keep in mind that investing is a long game, these distributions should go up over time with short-term fluctuations.

The one big standout for me this month is ZDY, with a whopping $0.20 cash distribution up from $0.09 last month.  Typically I would expect large distributions in December when ETFs are preparing for the upcoming year, but this is a nice little surprise.  I look forward to receiving the bonus distribution as I hold ZDY in my portfolio.

If you are a unitholder for the above listed ETFs at close of business on February 27, 2020, you will receive cash distributions that will become payable on March 3, 2020.  If you use Questrade like I do, the cash distributions will show up in your account on March 4, 2020.

If you received a raise this month, Congratulations! 👍
