Dividends4Life: 4 Dividend Aristocrats ETFs for Your Income Portfolio

Dividend aristocrats are an elite group of dividend-paying stocks that have increased dividends for 25 consecutive years. Out of all the companies on the S&P 500, the dividend aristocrats list contained just 51 companies at the end of 2015. Some of the best dividend ETFs on the market are built on variants of this list. Here are funds that track various "dividend aristocrat" indexes. The specifics for each fund are listed below...

Not all dividend aristocrats ETFs are created equal. The ETF that holds most true to the original meaning of dividend aristocrats is the ProShares S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats ETF (NOBL). One might think that selecting from dividend stocks around the world might allow a fund sponsor to avoid bending some rules, but the SPDR S&P Global Dividend ETF (WDIV) bends two important rules in the pursuit of the best dividend stocks. If you want to invest in dividend-paying companies that potentially have more growth opportunity, the S&P MidCap 400 Dividend Aristocrats ETF (REGL) might be ideal for you. If you're looking for the highest-yielding dividend stocks, the SPDR S&P Dividend ETF (SDY) gets the job done.
