The company announced good earnings today, why am I not getting dividends?

Although shareholders are entitled to dividends when paid out by the company, a company can choose not to pay dividends to shareholders, thereby retaining the earnings for reinvestment and other purposes. New companies usually reinvest most of their earnings, while established firms tend to pay dividends.
