The article begins with an introduction to the SDY ETF and what it selects, which, according to the article, is the highest 50 dividend-paying stocks from the S&P 1500 Composite Index. These stocks must have increased dividends for the last 20 years, consecutively.
“Using SPDR’s SDY ETF to Build a Dividend Paying Portfolio” continues with a chart depicting the drawdowns for the SDY ETF since its inception in 2005. The article then classifies the SDY ETF as a rising dividend ETF, and makes suggestions of the ETFs to combine with rising dividends. Remonsy ETF Network selects the appropriate ETFs and then shows the drawdown chart for this sample portfolio.
The article concludes by sharing alternative ETF purchasing options if the risk level of the first sample portfolio was too high for personal risk tolerance.
Do-it-yourself investors can use this information on the SDY ETF to determine if it is right for their dividend paying portfolio.
