You need to assign the result to an object.

vox_div <- quantmod::getDividends("VOX")

You should check to see if the dividends are split-adjusted or not.
Yahoo has changed that several times over the years. Use the
`split.adjust` argument to get the (un)adjusted dividends. The boolean
may be backward because of Yahoo's changes.
