After a 29.5% weight to financial services stocks, QDXU devotes a combined 32% of its weight to the energy and health care sectors. That is another important trait because European energy and pharmaceuticals giants, such as Novartis (NYSE: NVS), BP (NYSE: BP) and Total (NYSE: TOT), often sport higher yields than their U.S. counterparts.

QDXU has a 30-day SEC yield of 3.45% and charges 0.45% per year.
