Dividends4Life: These 3 Stocks Have Lifted Vanguard High Dividend Yield ETF in 2017

Dividend ETFs can be extremely lucrative for income investors, and the Vanguard High Dividend Yield ETF (NYSEMKT:VYM) has provided its investors with exposure to a host of dividend stocks with above-average yields. Unfortunately, the ETF hasn't been able to match the performance of the broader market so far this year, due in part to some large fund holdings that have lost ground.

Yet a few key stocks have helped keep Vanguard High Dividend Yield from suffering overall declines. Below, we'll look at how key contributors Boeing (NYSE:BA), McDonald's (NYSE:MCD), and AbbVie (NYSE:ABBV) have helped the ETF's performance, and whether they can keep doing so going forward.
