Global X SuperDividend ETF (SDIV)
Global X SuperDividend ETF (SDIV) scours the globe for high-yield dividend stocks, heavily titled toward real estate, financial services, telecommunication firms and utilities.
The REITs in particular help this dividend ETF throw off that gusher of a 7.3% yield, but it hasn’t been too shabby on price performance, either. SDIV is up more than 7% for the year-to-date. Sure, that lags the S&P 500 by a mile, but it absolutely crushes bonds — and we are looking for income here, right?
At the same time, the high yield and international diversification give SDIV some defensive characteristics. For example, a few top holdings include R.R. Donnelley (RRD), Electricité de France (ECIFY) and Fisher & Paykel Healthcare (FSPKF). Those three stocks alone range from the U.S. to France to New Zealand.
