The iShares Dow Jones Select Dividend Index Fund (NYSE:DVY) provides a bigger headline yield, thanks in part to being overweight in the utilities sector with roughly a third of its portfolio in this segment of the market. The bigger yield does come at a bit larger expense ratio, however, even if this iShares fund is pegged to the Dow Jones U.S. Select Dividend Index.
