In Part 1 of this article, I presented the top 50 holdings of 52 dividend ETFs. To rank these holdings, I use a proportional scoring system that favors larger investments and larger ETFs. The top-ranked stock in May 2019 is Verizon Communications (VZ), followed by AT&T (T), and Exxon Mobil (XOM).
The top 50 holdings are not distributed evenly among the 11 GICS sectors. In fact, there are no Materials and Real Estate sector stocks in the top 50 holdings:
For investors looking to build a diversified portfolio, this uneven distribution is not very helpful.

I include key ratings and metrics for each stock, along with a quality score and Morningstar's fair value estimate. I'm hoping readers will find this information a good basis for selecting candidates for further analysis and possible investment.
Top Holdings By Sector Below I present the top 7 ranked stocks by GICS sectors.
In the first table, Rank is the stock's rank as determined by my proportional scoring system. Cells in the Rank column are highlighted for stocks in the top 50 holdings. Freq indicates the number of dividend ETFs containing Ticker in their top 25 holdings. Years are the number of consecutive years of dividend increases; Yield is the forward dividend yield and 5-DGR is the compound annual dividend growth rate over a 5-year period ending in December 2018, where available.
