Dividend ETFs or Individual stocks

3 posts in this topic

One obvious benefit of investing in dividend ETFs instead of individual stocks is the saving of time and effort. While there is plenty of information online that teaches investors how to build a dividend portfolio that suits their needs, not every investor has the time to do it. Security analysis takes a long time to master. For some investors, buying dividend ETFs could be a much faster way to get started on dividend investing

But ETFs have a fees, and a more substantial cost of putting your money in dividend ETFs is that you don’t get much control. Each individual is different; you may have a very different set of investment objectives and risk tolerance compared to the next investor. A dividend ETF can provide great yields, but it’s unlikely to be tailored to your own investment goals and risk profile.

Which one is better?

Well I think ETFs are a more better option for getting a better benefit. ProShares S&P MidCap 400 Dividend Aristocrats ETF and ProShares S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats ETF are the best options for this year.

Owning a dividend ETF does come at an annual cost, which is known as a management expense ratio (MER). This is paid to the portfolio management team for following the index or making adjustments to the dividend ETF. This would be a great impact on your overall long-term returns if the MER fee is very high.

For this reason I am considering best dividend ETFs for 2017 like:

ProShares S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats  ETF, Financial Select Sector SPDR FUND, and iShares Select Dividend ETF.
