Best Dividend ETFs

Exchange traded funds (ETFs) are investment vehicles that trade like stocks, but like a mutual fund hold a bundle of securities. Dividend ETFs focus on dividend-paying securities, providing a reliable distribution for shareholders.

Although we prefer individual dividend stocks to ETFs, we are now tracking the price movements of some major dividend-focused ETFs, and will update the names below regularly. Please note that we do not rate or recommend any of the ETFS on this page, and ETFs can have different tax implications than regular equities, so talk to a tax professional first.

Also, be aware that many ETFs trade with very low volume (less than 50,000 shares/day). This means you could see wider gaps on fills on your market orders, and low-volume stocks can be volatile due to their small shareholder base.
