This Fund Provides Consistent Income

Investment expert Jim Woods shares the details on this fund that provides consistent income.

The exchange-traded fund iShares Select Dividend ETF (DVY) focuses on holding equities with a history of consistent income instead of equities with potential future dividend increases.

All DVY‚??s holdings have at least a 5-year record of paying dividends. DVY invests its $17.5 billion in total assets in roughly 100 stocks based on dividend yield from a broad market-cap universe.

Unlike many other funds that weigh their holdings according to market cap, DVY weighs its holdings by dividend per share. This results in a skew toward smaller firms that pay consistent dividends.

With its high asset base and great liquidity of $46.15 million in daily trading volume, DVY is one of the most accessible funds on the market for reliable dividend income. Around 30% of the fund‚??s portfolio is in utilities, which is one of the sectors with the highest yields, although utilities also tend to be rate sensitive and relatively slow-growing.
