Best Dividend ETFs: The Top 10 Funds for Dividend Income

The best dividend ETFs for long-term investors charge low fees, maintain nice diversification, keep turnover low, and track benchmarks that apply some filters for business quality and dividend safety.   I reviewed the pros and cons of investing in dividend ETFs earlier, but I never identified specific funds that I consider to be the best dividend ETFs.   By the end of this article, you will have learned about some of the best dividend ETFs available today for you to consider for your own portfolio.   While investing has no short cuts, I believe these dividend ETFs are some of the best ones out there for passive income investors.   The table below lists each top dividend ETF’s market cap, [...]

Dividend ETFs: Is Investing in Dividend Funds Worth It?

An exchange traded fund, or ETF, is a publicly-traded fund that tracks an index such as the S&P 500. There are nearly 2,000 ETFs in the U.S., but fewer than 150 funds are specifically classified as dividend ETFs.   Dividend ETFs can provide a number of benefits for investors seeking safe retirement income or long-term growth. In fact, many investors own a combination of dividend ETFs and individual stocks in their portfolios.   However, there is a never-ending debate over the merits of actively picking stocks versus allocating a portfolio completely into low-cost, passively-managed ETFs.   The reality is that an investor’s mix of dividend ETFs and individual stocks almost completely depends on the investor’s personal preferences. There are numerous [...]

  • Warren Buffett's Best High Yield Dividend Stocks

Warren Buffett’s Best High-Yield Dividend Stocks – May 2016 Update

Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway outperformed the S&P 500 by 11.1% per year from 1965-2015, generating an overall gain of 1,598,284% compared to the market's total return of 11,355%.   It's no wonder why investors closely monitor Warren Buffett's portfolio. He is arguably the greatest investor of all time.   While Berkshire Hathaway itself does not pay a dividend because it prefers to reinvest all of its earnings for growth, Warren Buffett has certainly not been shy about owning shares of dividend-paying stocks, and we will analyze each of Buffett's dividend stocks in this article.   A dividend is often the sign of a financially healthy and stable business that is committed to rewarding shareholders. These are some of the qualities Warren Buffett [...]

  • Dividend Achievers List

2016 Dividend Achievers List

The Nasdaq Dividend Achievers Index is a group of companies that have consistently rewarded shareholders with increasing dividend payouts.   Companies qualify for the Dividend Achievers List if they have raised their dividends each year for at least 10 consecutive years and meet certain trading liquidity requirements.   Why is the Dividend Achievers List popular?

  • How to Manage Dividend Portfolio

How to Measure and Manage Your Dividend Portfolio

Peter Drucker, one of the most notable management consultants and business visionaries of all-time, once wrote: “What gets measured gets managed.”   Mr. Drucker is getting at several points. Perhaps most obviously, we are more likely to pay closer attention to something if we simply begin observing and examining it.   By developing measurements of an activity, we can begin to better understand the activity itself and figure out ways to tangibly improve it.   Now, should we begin measuring every last activity in our lives? Of course not. Measuring and trying to better manage many of the activities we carry out each day would become counterproductive.   The 80/20 rule seems to apply here where measuring 20% of our [...]
