A recent article in The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) discusses the growing investor interest in dividend ETFs. The article warns about the risk of simply choosing the fund with the highest dividend yield. Instead, WSJ notes that financial advisors are steering clients toward funds investing in high-quality dividends, such as ProShares S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats ETF (NOBL).
As noted in the article, financial advisors say that funds that invest in dividend paying stocks typically perform well during market downturns, are financially resilient and tend to have a high return on assets.
The article includes commentary from Simeon Hyman, ProShares Global Investment Strategist.
