The Best Dividend ETFs

Many investors are turning to ETFs as a simple way to invest their cash and get a diversified portfolio without paying for high management fees. The rapid expansion of ETFs leaves many dividend growth investors seeking the benefits of diversification and low costs, but how can they pick the right ETF? Remember that dividend investors aren't all focusing on acquiring the highest yields possible. There are substantial benefits to having a lower level of volatility or a faster growth rate in future dividends. To further complicate the issue some investors have already picked out several individual stocks for their portfolio and need to find an ETF that will fit around the holdings they already selected.
The Solution
Investors can solve these issues by having a quick way to rapidly compare several potential ETFs to determine which ones would fit best in their portfolio. I put an emphasis on low expense ratios so any ETF with an expense ratio of .40% won't qualify. The following list shows several ETFs that I think investors should consider as allocations:
Schwab U.S. Dividend Equity ETF
Vanguard High Dividend Yield ETF
Vanguard Dividend Appreciation ETF
iShares Core Dividend Growth ETF
iShares Core High Dividend ETF
WisdomTree LargeCap Dividend ETF
WisdomTree U.S. Dividend Growth ETF
PowerShares S&P 500 High Dividend Portfolio ETF
