While the Federal Reserve has stated its intentions of hiking interest rates, the time horizon for higher interest rates remains unclear, and investors are still in need of income opportunities. A share buyback program have also been a way to generate returns for investors over the long haul, even during troubled market conditions. With the U.S. rally pushing higher and concerns over a pullback, investors may look to steady income opportunities to increase their exposure to higher quality companies.

DIVB includes a heavy tilt toward tech names at 21.2%, followed by financials 17.3%, consumer discretionary 13.6%, health care 13.3% and industrials 12.2%. Top holdings include Apple 5.1%, Microsoft 3.1%, Johnson & Johnson 2.0%, General Electric 1.8% and JPMorgan Chase 1.8%.
