Dividends4Life: Dividend ETFs for the Second Half

Dividend ETFs for the Second Half

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, July 11, 2012 | 0 comments »

It was a tumultuous second quarter for equities as the SPDR S&P 500 (NYSE: SPY) fell almost 3.2 percent, but dividend ETFs flexed their muscles and provided investors some shelter from macroeconomic headwinds and broader market carnage. VIG's unimpressive second-quarter performance aside, these are good days for dividend investors. Dividend increases have far outpaced reductions and suspensions this year to the point where about 80 percent of S&P 500 constituents currently pay dividends.

That's good news considering the income one can depend on from Treasuries and CDs. In other words, barely enough to get fund a trip to Starbuck's (NASDAQ: SBUX) on the city bus. With that in mind, these dividends merit consideration in the second half. WisdomTree MidCap Dividend Fund (NYSE: DON), EGShares Low Volatility Emerging Markets Dividend ETF (NYSE: HILO), Global X SuperDividend ETF (NYSE: SDIV), WisdomTree Emerging Markets Corporate Bond Fund (NASDAQ: EMCB) and Guggenheim Multi-Asset Income ETF (NYSE: CVY).
