iShares Core High Dividend ETF - A Low-Cost Dividend ETF

Published Fri, 24 May 2019 15:00:42 -0400 on Seeking Alpha

iShares Core High Dividend ETF (HDV) is an ETF that provides exposure to high-quality U.S. companies which have high dividend yields. It provides investors an attractive dividend yield and potential capital appreciation (28% in past 5 years).
Investment Thesis
HDV tries to track the investment results of an index composed of relatively high dividend paying U.S. equities. As such, it provides access to 75 U.S.-based high-quality, high dividend paying companies.
iShares Core High Dividend ETF provides access to 75 U.S.-based high-quality companies that pay high dividends. It performed not as well as the S&P500 in the past 5 years, but HDV has a higher yield than the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY).

When we compare the performance of HDV to other similar dividend ETFs, such as iShares International Select Dividend ETF (IDV) and Vanguard High Dividend Yield Index Fund ETF (VYM) we can see that on a total return basis HDV has outperformed the other ETFs.

I believe that because of HDV's performance compared to similar ETF's make it worth consideration to include it in your portfolio. Later in this article, we go into more details about the valuation and the costs associated with this ETF.
Overview
Since being founded in 2011, the fund has amassed $7.1 billion in assets and has 75 holdings. It trades on average 540,503 shares per day which provides enough liquidity. In addition, HDV has an expense ratio of 0.08%.
