State Street Global Advisors Launches Nine New Exchange-Traded Funds including a S&P dividend fund and three financial sector funds. Financial services stocks have been some of the top performers in the last month and State Street now provides a few more thinly slices of that pie.

The SPDR Dividend ETF tracks the S&P® High Yield Dividend
Aristocrats Index, which includes the 50 highest-yielding S&P
Composite 1500 constituents that have increased their dividends every
year over the past 25 years.

The new funds, and their ticker symbols, are:
