WisdomTree U.S. Large Cap Dividend ETF: Favorable Outlook Continues

Published Fri, 08 Nov 2019 15:32:44 -0500 on Seeking Alpha

ETF Overview
WisdomTree U.S. Large Cap Dividend ETF (DLN) focuses on large-cap dividend stocks in the United States. DLN tracks the WisdomTree U.S. Large Cap Dividend Index. The fund selects 300 largest companies by market cap from the WisdomTree Dividend Index. Its selection results in large-cap stocks that have competitive position. DLN has a higher exposure to cyclical sectors than defensive sectors. Therefore, it has considerable risk in an economic downturn. Since we still hold the view that the U.S. economy will re-accelerate in 2020, and that the fund’s valuation is not inflated, we believe DLN is still a good investment choice today.
