Global X SuperDividend ETF: Still Not Super

Published Sun, 13 Jan 2019 17:45:19 -0500 on Seeking Alpha

If there is one constant in investing, it is that less astute investors will be drawn to "sexy" investment ideas. For equity investors these ideas may the story of some penny stock which is poised to grow from $.05 to $10 per share, or perhaps a new ETF targeting some exotic sector which retail investors would otherwise have no way of accessing.
For income investors, these are generally ETFs and ETNs promising really high yields such as the plethora of 2x leveraged ETNs or the highly popular but poorly performing ETFs such as the Global X SuperDividend ETF (SDIV).
We discussed SDIV last year in the article "Global X SuperDividend ETF: Is It Really That Bad?"
What we found was that while yes, the fund provided a very strong distribution, the underlying performance and how the fund operates left very much to be desired.
Today, the fund has close to $1 billion in assets under management which makes it quite successful in terms of its capital raise, but does it deserve your capital?
Let's take a look!
