SPHD: A Top 2019 ETF For Dividend Investors

Published Fri, 12 Apr 2019 08:19:14 -0400 on Seeking Alpha

My last article for this platform was a review of what I called the "best 2019 ETF for dividend growth investors." I will provide a link to that article towards the end of this article, when I will offer it as an interesting comparative point of reference.
As usual, the article generated some excellent comments from several of my astute readers. Included in those comments were several references to the ticker symbol "SPHD." Both because I respect the savviness of my readers and because I tend to be naturally curious, I decided to take a closer look at this ETF.
SPHD is the ticker symbol for the Invesco S&P 500 High Dividend Low Volatility ETF (SPHD).
First of all, let me address the key reason I have not previously featured this ETF right upfront. These days, investors can select from a substantial assortment of top-quality ETFs with expense ratios of .10% or less. SPHD's expense ratio of .30% means that its performance has to overcome a built-in 'handicap' of some .20% or more when compared to these options. Because expenses are incurred in both good times and bad, I have consistently featured the matter of keeping expenses low as one of the solid anchors for your portfolio.
At the same time, one does well not to close one's mind. From time to time, options may present themselves which genuinely deserve a careful examination. I believe SPHD is one of those options. Let's dive in and explore why I believe that to be the case, shall we?
