Performance Of Dividend ETFs During The Crash

Published Mon, 16 Mar 2020 15:24:25 -0400 on Seeking Alpha

I examine the performance of the most popular dividend ETFs during the recent correction.
There were a number of important findings I discovered by examining the data.
Many of the top funds from my original article were in the top half of best performing funds during this correction.
In mid-January, I posted an article that covered the 18 most popular dividend ETFs and it was one of my most popular articles in my time here on Seeking Alpha. In the comments section, some users mentioned the performance of the top ETFs being lower yield, higher growth ETFs, so naturally it made sense that they would be outperforming when the market was going up. Now, we have a real correction on our hands, so I thought I would check back in to see how the group of dividend ETFs I covered has performed during this steep correction.
Correction Performance
In the table below, I have provided the correction performance of the 18 dividend ETFs I covered in my previous article and I included the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) as a performance reference. The start date for the data is February 19th and ending on March 12th. February 19th was the recent high and March 12th was the recent low.
