3 Unique Dividend ETFs With 6%-Plus Yields http://investorplace.com/2014/03/3-unique-dividend-etfs/ http://investorplace.com/2014/03/3-unique-dividend-etfs/#comments Thu, 13 Mar 2014 19:08:57 +0000 http://investorplace.com/?p=488447 When it comes to dividend stocks, we always want to make sure we are buying good investments, because a high yield may mask a terrible business. That’s why I like dividend ETFs, because they provide tremendous diversity. If a company or three go bust in the ETF, it shouldn’t impact the holding too badly. I’ve found three nice choices for dividend ETFs that offer diversity both within each selection and across all three selections.
