Dividend ETFs

It has long been my intent to write an article with a title like, "Can Dividend ETFs Replicate What Dividend Growth Investors Do?" After all, funds have a certain one-stop-shopping appeal, and if I could reasonably achieve an effective dividend growth strategy and its results by purchasing an ETF or two, I would be strongly tempted to do it. More time for golf, poker, and other fun pursuits. I've been collecting material for such an article for months.

In this article, we'll look at two of the most popular dividend ETFs plus SPY (SPY), the largest ETF tracking the S&P 500. I am including SPY because the S&P 500 is often used as a "plain vanilla" stock benchmark, and statistics regarding the dividend behaviors of S&P 500 companies are frequently used to create broad impressions of what "dividend stocks" are doing. So here's the lineup for this article: 1. SPDR S&P 500 tracking ETF: SPY, 2. Vanguard Dividend Appreciation ETF (VIG) and 3. iShares Dow Jones Select Dividend Index (DVY)
