A Potentially Excellent Dividend ETF You Should Consider

Posted On July 20, 2017 10:47 pm

Recently I highlighted on of the few dividend ETFs that I own, and consider the gold standard of ETFs.

That’s due to its multi-factor approach to what’s known as “smart beta”, meaning a portfolio composition method designed to beat the market’s already impressive 9.1% annual total returns since 1871.

Specifically those include: high-yield, consistent dividend growth, and low volatility.

However, recently PowerShares launched a new smart beta dividend ETF that I believe has the potential for even better total returns, the S&P Small Cap High Dividend, Low Volatility ETF (XSHD).

This ETF builds on the proven ability of low volatility, high-yield dividend growth stocks to compound wealth and income over time, by adding a small cap component, because historically smaller companies tend to outperform larger ones over time.

Let’s take a closer look at why, despite being a passionate, and talented stock picker, I like this ETF enough to include it in my own real money portfolio.

I'm currently on an epic quest to build a broadly diversified, high-quality, high-yield dividend growth portfolio that: 1. Pays a 5% yield 2. Offers 7% annual dividend growth 3. Pays dividends AT LEAST on a weekly, but preferably, daily basis
