It has been another banner year for dividend as positive dividend actions across S&P 500 stocks have far outpaced cuts and suspensions.
Notably, dividend ETFs are shining in what some have dubbed the golden age of dividends. ETF issuers are meeting investors’ demands and passion for dividends with a steady stream of new income funds. More importantly, dividend ETFs are thriving in terms of asset-gathering proficiency.
There is now roughly $80 billion stashed in dividend ETFs, up from $55 billion a year ago, and well above the $67 billion allocated to ETFs holding U.S. Treasuries, according to Ned Davis Research.
Advisors have more dividend ETF options than ever before, confirming that the time is right for focused conversation on dividend growth strategies. That will be the cornerstone of the following Webcast on Thursday October 24, 2013 at 2PM Eastern:
