ETF Trends publisher Tom Lydon discussed the ALPS Sector Dividend Dogs ETF (SDOG) on this week’s “ETF of the Week” podcast with Chuck Jaffe on the MoneyLife Show.
SDOG is a nice dividend ETF option for those looking to rotate into value. Growth stocks outperformed in 2017, but the extended bull market rally may put these pricey growth picks at greater risk in case of a turn.
As we start out 2018, it may also be an opportune time to consider a type of “Dogs of the Dow” type strategy, like SDOG, that has a value tilt.
