WisdomTree U.S. Dividend Growth Fund (NasdaqGS: DGRW)

AUM: $66.1 million

Performance since debut: Up 6.9%

Distribution yield: 1.72%

Comment: With an emphasis on future sources of dividend growth rather than backward-looking dividend increase streaks, DGRW could be an emerging dividend ETF titan. Importantly, DGRW is not as sensitive to rising interest as some of its older rivals as telecom and utilities names are not found in this new fund. Rather, DGRW is focused industrials, technology and consumer discretionary to the tune of 61% of the ETF’s weight. Those are not the most rate-sensitive sectors, but the latter two have been prodigious dividend raisers as of late. [ETFs for Dividend Growth]
