Dividend ETFs For Retirement Investors #4: WisdomTree Total Dividend ETF
The bulk of investor’s attention in the dividend space tends to be on the largest firms. However, mid- and small-cap stocks can be big-time dividend payers, too. Retirement investors shouldn’t ignore them in their search for yield.
That’s why the WisdomTree Total Dividend ETF (DTD) might make a great play.
DTD focuses on dividend payers across the entire stock market, including mid- and small-cap firms. The fund holds roughly 960 different stocks in all. And like many of WisdomTree’s funds, DTD weights its constituents based on what dividends the firm is projected to pay in the coming upcoming year. That breadth of holdings produces a 2.5% dividend yield.
DTD has a bonus for retirement investors: It pays out its dividend monthly rather than quarterly. That means investors can use it better gauge their cash flows.
Expenses for DTD run just 0.28%.
