Achieve A Super Yield With The SuperDividend ETF

Posted by D4L | Thursday, October 09, 2014 | | 0 comments »

The Global X SuperDividend ETF (NYSEARCA:SDIV) looks to achieve a superior yield by making equal weighted investments in 100 of the highest yielding global companies. It's a true global ETF as it maintains just a 29% weighting in the United States, but the risks that go along with a global ETF such as this should be familiar. The ongoing tensions in the Ukraine, the ongoing recovery in the Eurozone and the slowdown in Japan are all putting pressure on the international equity markets. The ETF's focus on larger companies from the world's more developed markets, however, helps limit some of that risk.

The yield on the SuperDividend ETF currently sits at 5.66%. That's a bit higher than the 5.30% dividend yield of the SPDR S&P International Dividend ETF (NYSEARCA:DWX) and well above that of the S&P 500's (NYSEARCA:SPY) 1.78% yield. With long-term Treasuries still hovering at 3% or below for the foreseeable future, coupled with the sovereign debt of nations across Europe and Asia largely struggling to provide any real return, it's easy to see how yield seeking investors would be drawn to the SuperDividend ETF.
