Service companies offer a variety of services for individuals and businesses, which can include everything from advertising to jewelry. Companies in this sector generally specialize in a specific service, but may branch into related services. Service companies generally offer dividend yields that are above average when compared with the wider market.

If you’re looking to invest in dividend-paying consumer services sector stocks, you may also be interested in dividend-paying consumer services exchange-traded funds (ETFs). These funds offer a diversified dividend payment based on a basket of consumer services stock holdings. ETFs trade on stock exchanges, similar to equities and they’re also similar to mutual funds in that they hold securities of many companies.

3 Reasons to Invest in dividend-paying Consumer Services ETFs:

  • Instead of putting all your eggs in one basket, you get a diversified dividend payment based on a basket of consumer services stocks.
  • All ETFs have very low fees and can be traded just like stocks.
  • It’s easy to gain exposure to many dividend-paying consumer services stocks with just one vehicle (ETF).

Whereas, if you’re interested in investing in individual services stocks, check out the tables below.
