Dividends4Life: Unique Dividend ETFs

Unique Dividend ETFs

Posted by D4L | Wednesday, July 04, 2012 | | 0 comments »

While some prefer to focus on evaluating the best dividend stocks, there has also been a surge in interest for dividend-focused ETFs. There are now more than 50 ETFs that specifically target dividend-paying stocks, including variations that focus on yield, consistency, and other characteristics.

The dividend ETF space, like the ETF industry in general, is top-heavy; there are a handful of funds that represent the bulk of assets. In this case, the Vanguard Dividend Appreciation ETF (NYSEARCA:VIG), iShares Dow Jones Select Dividend Index Fund (NYSEARCA:DVY) and SPDR S&P Dividend ETF (NYSEARCA:SDY) have about $30 billion in aggregate assets; the remaining four dozen or so dividend ETFs combine for far less than that. But just because a fund is large doesn’t mean it’s the best option out there.
