One of the biggest surprises of the summer has been the outperformance of dividend stocks. Despite rates and yields rising, dividend stocks have done very well. With that in mind, here is a list of 7 of the best cheap high dividend yield ETFs: iShares Core High Dividend ETF (HVD, 3.51% yield), SPDR Portfolio S&P 500 High Dividend ETF (SPYD, 3.71%), Invesco Dow Jones Industrial Average Dividend ETF (DJD), Invesco S&P 500 Quality ETF (SPHQ, 1.73%), Vanguard High Dividend Yield ETF (VYM, 2.87%), JPMorgan U.S. Dividend ETF (JDIV, 3.76%), Xtrackers MSCI EAFE High Dividend Yield Equity ETF (HDEF).
FINSUM: All of these funds have very low expense ratios, and varying (but generally high yields). If you are looking for dividend income, these are a good place to start. That said, these are non-hedged, so there a good deal of rate risk.
