Not satisfied with the amount of returns in our domestic markets? You may want to consider looking overseas, because there are a number of international exchange traded funds (ETFs) giving you the diversification benefits of global investing while kicking off handsome yields.
According to Aryeh Katz for Investopedia, there are half a dozen global ETFs that pay out annual yields of at least 8%, with the added benefit of trading at four or less price-to-earnings and a price-to-book ratio of just one or less. [5 Things to Know When You’re Hunting for ETF Yields.]
SPDR EURO STOXX 50 ETF (NYSEArca: FEZ) is one suggestion Katz makes. FEZ tries to reflect the EURO STOXX 50 Index, which tracks the largest companies of corporate Europe. The fund pays out an annual 10.2%. [Getting Paid in a Volatile ETF Market.]
Using the ETF Analyzer, you can find a number of other international ETFs delivering equally nice yields, including:
- iShares FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Europe (NYSEArca: IFEU), 9.6%
- First Trust Dow Jones STOXX Select Dividend 30 (NYSEArca: FDD), 9.3%
- Claymore/S&P Global Dividend Opportunities (NYSEArca: LVL), 9.1%
