Top Holdings Of Dividend ETFs (Part 2: The Top 10 By Sector)

Published Mon, 26 Nov 2018 16:40:16 -0500 on Seeking Alpha

In Part 1 of this article, I presented a virtual portfolio of the top holdings of 47 dividend ETFs.

Sorting the aggregate scores in descending order determines the rank of each stock (ticker).
Exxon Mobil (XOM) is the highest ranked stock, followed by Apple (AAPL) and Microsoft (MSFT). XOM appeared in the top 25 holdings of 23 ETFs, whereas AAPL and MSFT appeared in 15 of the ETFs.
The top 50 holdings are not distributed evenly among the 11 GICS sectors. In fact, not a single Materials sector stock is present in the top 50 holdings:

For investors looking to build a diversified portfolio, this uneven distribution is not very helpful.
In Part 2 of this article, I'm presenting the top 10 stocks in each GICS sector regardless of overall ranking. Seeing the top 10 stocks in each sector, along with key ratings and metrics, is quite useful, in my view, and should give readers additional insight into the holdings of dividend ETFs.
The New GICS Sectors The Global Industry Classification Standards (GICS) is a classification system developed in 1999 by MSCI and S&P Dow Jones Indices. GICS is a four-tiered, hierarchical industry classification system consisting of 11 sectors, 24 industry groups, 69 industries, and 158 sub-industries:
