Dividends, top Canadian mutual funds, house prices and tax were the popular themes of this year!

Wow. Where to begin with the year we just had? With almost the entire world in lockdown at one point or another of 2020, it is safe to say that this year has not been ‘normal’. In fact it’s so ‘not-normal’ that Oxford Languages, thepublisher of the Oxford English Dictionary, doesn’t even have a Word of the Year for 2020. Instead, this year’s report highlights the impact of the coronavirus on the English language.

The report highlights words in each month. January, for example, had words like ‘Bushfire’ (remember that?) and ‘Impeachment’, followed by ‘Acquittal’ in February. March and April were dominated with ‘Coronavirus’, ‘COVID-19’, ‘Lockdown’ and ‘Social Distancing’. June and July were ‘Black Lives Matter’, ‘Cancel Culture’ and ‘BIPOC’. October had ‘Super Spreader’.

What a year, indeed.

At Morningstar Canada, though, the themes, trends and topics that interested our readers did not deviate wildly from previous years, which goes to show that in the long-term, as the Sufi poet Attar showed in his fable, ‘This too shall pass.’

The topics of interest included dividends, real estate, cheap stock picks, and Canadian mutual funds. Here are the 10 most viewed pieces of content in 2020:
