Dividends4Life: This Emerging Markets ETF Delivers A 4.2% Yield

According to Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, exchange traded funds that focus on dividend-paying stocks have attracted more money during the past two and half years than any other broad stock class. The big boys in the group, the $10.4 billion iShares Dow Jones Select Dividend ETF (DVY) and $9 billion SPDR S&P Dividend ETF (SPY) focus on well-known U.S. dividend payers—the likes of Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Chevron (CVX) and AT&T (T), all of which have Treasury-beating dividend yields.

The $3.75 billion WisdomTree Emerging Markets Equity Income (DEM) has a fat 4.2% dividend yield. More important for long-term investors, it has managed impressive total returns since launching in mid 2007. In fact, the dividend-focused WisdomTree emerging markets ETF has managed to outpace the $50 billion Vanguard MSCI Emerging Market ETF (VWO) that tracks a broad market index.
