In December last year, I presented the Top Holdings of Dividend ETFs, a virtual portfolio of dividend growth stocks compiled from 27 exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that invest in dividend-paying stocks. In June 2017, I presented an update based on 28 dividend ETFs.
To compile the virtual portfolio, I analyze the top 25 holdings in each ETF and assign scores proportional to the size of each holding. Summing the scores of individual holdings allows me to rank them by popularity, and so to find the top holdings of these dividend ETFs.
This article repeats the exercise, this time with 32 dividend ETFs. I present the top 50 holdings along with key statistics and fair value estimates from Morningstar.
About ETFs ETFs are investment funds that hold assets like stocks, commodities, or bonds. Ownership of the assets under management is divided into ETF shares, which are traded on public stock exchanges much like shares of stocks. ETF shareholders are entitled to a proportion of profits, such as earned interest or dividends received.
Investing in ETFs provides several benefits, including instant diversification and passive investment. However, you have no control over the makeup of the ETF or its turnover rate. The investment manager determines the ETF's makeup and trading frequency and charges a recurring annual fee, expressed as the ETF's expense ratio
Dividend ETFs invest in stocks that regularly pay and increase dividends.
