How to choose a good dividend ETF
– Total return: Though the focus here is on the dividend yield, you have to keep in mind the total return. The profit or loss we make on any investment combines both dividend income and capital gain or loss. Looking at the long-term performance of the fund is crucial. An ETF that provides a good capital appreciation with a high dividend yield is preferable.
–Diversification: A diversified ETF is always a safer option. Some high yield ETFs are sector-specific (Financials, Energy or Gold). The ones focused on Energy and Gold have had an inferior long-term performance and carry high volatility risk.
–Volume and liquidity of the ETF. The higher the asset under management, the lower the trading costs of the ETF (difference between the bid and ask price).
