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

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.

This is a proportional scoring system that favors larger investments over smaller ones within the same ETF.
