The Federal Reserve may be preparing to raise interest rates, but even if that happens, U.S. rates will remain near historic lows, which increases the allure of income-generating instruments such as dividend exchange traded funds.

Advisors can tap into dividend ETFs with a crop of new funds based renowned investment principals from Value Line, the independent investment research firm famous for the Value Line Investment Survey.

Scheduled for Wednesday June 10 at 2 PM Eastern time, the upcoming webcast Value Line Research Powering ETF Strategies will explore how Value Line’s timeliness, performance, and safety ranks form the backbone of the strategies for several new Direxion ETFs.

VLSM emphasizes above-average dividend payers that sport favorable risk profiles. The new ETF is benchmarked to the Value Line Small- and Mid-Cap High Dividend Yield TR Index (VLSMT). Although the index and the ETF include small-caps, mid-caps are the dominant theme as those stocks account for over 84% of VLSM’s underlying index.
