Best Dividend ETF

For those of you that don’t know an ETF or Exchange Traded Fund is a mutual fund that trades like a stock throughout the day.  We recently received an email request from a visitor looking to save time on research.  They were looking for the best dividend ETF available.  Why anyone would prefer a high dividend ETF over a mutual fund is beyond me.  An ETF will not have the same minimum holding period or round trip trade caps that a mutual fund will have, but you also won’t make any more money buying and selling an ETF around the dividend execution dates than you will holding a mutual fund.  Also, it should be known that the “dividend” an ETF pays is many times actually a distribution, not an actual dividend.  But in the interest of providing the information our visitors are looking for, this is what we found for the best dividend ETF.

Best Dividend ETF List

BDCL (14.76% Distribution Yield) – This fund seeks to replicate the Wells Fargo Business Development Company index.  The index is a float adjusted, capitalization-weighted index that is intended to measure the performance of all Business Development Companies (“BDC”) that are listed on the New York Stock Exchange or NASDAQ and satisfy specified market capitalization and other eligibility requirements.  The BDC business model is to lend to small and midsized companies at high yield equivalent rates while also at times taking equity stakes in such companies.

NLR (13.64% Distribution Yield) – The investment seeks to replication as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the price and yield performance of the DAX global Nuclear Energy Index.  The fund normally invests 80% of its total assets in equity securities of U.S. and foreign companies primarily engaged in various aspects of the nuclear energy business.

TAN (13.62% Distribution Yield) – This investment follows solar energy and is NOT recommended by RPP Financial.  As we have stated in previous posts, it doesn’t seem that solar is going to be the sector to be involved in if you are looking for an alternative energy play.

REM (11.47% Distribution Yield) – The investment seeks investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of the FTSE NAREIT All Mortgage Capped Index. The fund invests at least 90% of its assets in securities of the index and in depositary receipts representing securities of the index. The index measures the performance of the residential and commercial mortgage real estate, mortgage finance and savings associations sectors of the U.S. equity market. It is non-diversified.

These figures are based on the ETF screener available through Schwab.com.  This is not an all-inclusive list of ETF investments available.  Our screener’s only criterion was a dividend or distribution yield above 6% interest.  This is the top four listings for the best dividend ETF.  Please also note that a dividend and a distribution yield are not the same like many investors think.  The distribution an ETF provides is income from dividends the investment holds as well as capital gains.

Didn’t you have a post on Apollo Investment Corp. (AINV) as being one of your favorite plays in the area of ETFs?

Yes Christine. That was actually in our list of best dividend paying stocks. Even though it is an ETF, it trades like a stock so we thought it would appeal more to those looking for the best dividend paying stocks over mutual funds.
