Top Holdings Of Dividend ETFs (Part 1: The Top 50)

Published Tue, 20 Nov 2018 10:30:19 -0500 on Seeking Alpha

From time to time, I compile a virtual portfolio of the top holdings of Dividend ETFs. I find the exercise insightful and certainly worth the effort. Comparing my portfolio to the virtual portfolio is informative, as it helps me to identify candidate stocks for analysis and possible investment.
Below, I'll provide a brief summary of the methodology. For a detailed description, please refer to previous editions in this series:

Dividend ETF Analysis Dividend ETFs invest in stocks that pay dividends and regularly increase them. The issuers of ETFs provide data about each ETF's holdings, typically the ticker symbol, company name, the percentage of assets under management allocated to each holding, and the market value of the holding.
I collect these data from established Dividend ETFs and compile a spreadsheet with tickers of the top 25 holdings in each ETF, along with the market value of each holding. To rank the top holdings, I use the relative market value of each holding to score the corresponding ticker. This is a proportional scoring system that favors larger investments over smaller ones within the same ETF.
