SPHD Offers A Low P/E Ratio And High Dividend Yield

Published Wed, 03 Jul 2019 11:49:04 -0400 on Seeking Alpha

As equities are hitting new highs, it is becoming harder for fund investors to ignore higher price-to-earning ratios of equity funds. The Invesco S&P 500® High Dividend Low Volatility ETF (SPHD) is simply being ignored due to recent under-performance compared to the S&P 500 (SPY). This is creating an interesting opportunity for long-term investors to rotate into an ETF that is yielding a much higher dividend then the S&P 500. Lets take a look at the recent under-performance of SPHD vs. SPY:
Data by YCharts
As you can see from the above chart, the SPHD started lagging the S&P 500 around April of this year. This is creating an opportunity for dividend focused investors to buy some shares.
SPHD is offering investors a P/E ratio of 14.31 vs. the S&P 500 of 21.96
What prompted me to take a look at the P/E ratio of SPHD was a recent conversation with a fellow low volatility investor, who expressed concern with the higher P/E ratios of the equity markets. Lets take a look at what Invesco has provided us here with the recent fund characteristics:
Price/Earnings Ratio: 14.31 Price/Book Ratio: 2.00 ROE: 17.33% Please note that these numbers are based on March 31st, as we do not have June 30th numbers yet.
SEC 30 day yield of 4.63%
The biggest draw of attention to this fund is clearly the high dividend yield. Coming in at 4.63%, the SPHD is yielding over double that of the S&P 500.
