Which S&P500 ETF is the Best? [SPY vs. VOO vs. IVV]
Taking a look at the most popular ETFs out there, which are the ETF trackers. Comparing the three main competitors from Vanguard, SPDR and iSharers (Blackrock) I'm looking at expense ratio, dividend, liquidity, Inflow and commission free offers.

Fall Into these Four SPDR ETFs this Autumn
The SPDR Gold Shares ETF has attracted $11.8 billion of inflows this year, more than any other ETF, as gold has popped 26% in 2016. Dave Mazza, head of mutual fund and ETF research at State Street Global Advisors , does not expect the fund flows to stop following the yellow metal's brilliant performance anytime soon. 'Gold will continue to attract assets as the political campaign heats up and central banks potentially take action in the U.S., Europe and Japan,' said Mazza. Mazza is also bullish on the Real Estate Select Sector SPDR Fund , up 7% year-to-date, heading into the fall. S&P Dow Jones Indices and MSCI have elevated real estate to its own sector, a move that's brought more attention to a corner of the market that's outperformed this year. 'Real estate is no longer buried in the financial sector,' said Mazza. 'It's an attractive place for investors to find income in this low yield environment and now that it is more visible it will become increasingly attractive with retail investors.' The SPDR S&P Dividend ETF , up 17% year-to-date, is another one of Mazza's top picks for the coming months, even though its performance has been flat since July. He said the SDY is going through a period of consolidation, but if the Federal Reserve does not move throughout the rest of the year then 'dividend stocks will take off again'. Finally, Mazza said investors should consider buying the SPDR DoubleLine Total Return Tactical ETF , which is up 3% thus far in 2016. Less than two years after its launch, TOTL has become one the largest actively managed ETFs with $2.8 billion in assets. And Mazza is recommending the ETF even though DoubleLine founder and current bond king Jeff Gundlach has recently become more bearish on bonds. 'Gundlach has the ability to make big market calls, but for investors seeking core fixed income exposure there is no better way than TOTL because it exquisitely balances both credit and interest rate risk,' said Mazza.

Why High Dividend, Low Volatility ETFs Are Best in a Wild Market
Investors seeking stability in a choppy market should seek out high dividend, low volatility or REIT funds, said Todd Rosenbluth, Director of ETF and Mutual Fund Research for S&P Capital IQ. Rosenbluth added that he is positive on the SPDR S&P Dividend ETF (SDY) which holds companies that have raised dividends each of the last 20 years. He also likes the PowerShares S&P 500 Low Volatility ETF (SPLV) which owns the 100 least risky stocks in the S&P 500. Finally, Rosenbluth is a fan of the Vanguard REIT ETF (VNQ) because it offers a high dividend yield at a very inexpensive cost.

As US ETFs see $7 billion in outflows, experts pinpoint where to hide
Thank you, everyone, for watching my videos and sharing them with friends ❤️. Please follow our twitter https://twitter.com/YTNightNews1 and get the latest hot news in future.Call it an ETF exodus.U.S.-based exchange-traded funds have seen $7 billion leave their portfolios in May alone as the major averages stay on track for the first negative month of 2019.But while the action might make it seem like investors are losing faith in the perpetually growing ETF market, experts say it's more likely that buyers are simply rotating their positions — and that, in this landscape, rotating is better than selling out entirely.Amid "slowing economic growth and slowing profits, investors should really target quality," said Matthew Bartolini, managing director and head of SPDR Americas Research at State Street Global Advisors. "That can provide a little bit of a margin of safety if these microbursts of volatility really extend themselves."Bartolini, who spoke Wednesday on CNBC's "ETF Edge," said the Federal Reserve's commitment to accommodative monetary policy should provide enough support for the markets for people to stay "broadly" invested. He noted that he's seen ETFs focused on fixed income, government assets and aggregate exposure garner interest in recent weeks. "I think what this tells us is that investors are willing to stay invested, but move towards more high-quality names with sustainable cash flows and high-quality balance sheets because, typically, in an economic slowdown, those are the types of stocks that tend to outperform," he said. "That really just shows the sophisticated and tactical nature that ETFs can provide for clients that are moving in and out of the market based on the latest information."Todd Rosenbluth, senior director of ETF and mutual fund research at CFRA, said the uncertainty won't last long. "We at CFRA think we're going to see a bounce back in June. That typically has happened when there's been a sell-off like we've had in May," Rosenbluth said in the same "ETF Edge" interview, adding that "investors have done well rotating during these volatile periods of time instead of hiding in the marketplace."Moreover, a number of ETFs focused on quality and low volatility have actually seen inflows recently, he noted.Those include:The iShares Edge MSCI USA Quality Factor ETF, ticker QUAL;The Invesco S&P 500 Low Volatility ETF, ticker SPLV;And the iShares Edge MSCI Min Vol USA ETF, ticker USMVFor investors looking to rotate now, Rosenbluth had some other recommendations, saying that "dividend strategies are a good place ... to be able to hide in the marketplace, get some income, and ride out some of this volatility that we're likely to have during the summer."He also noted that the consumer staples and health-care sectors have historically done well when the "sell in May" adage takes hold, flagging a few ETFs investors could use to hedge.All in all, his recommendations for ETF investors seeking protection in the summer months were:The SPDR S&P Dividend ETF, ticker SDY;The ProShares S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats ETF, ticker NOBL;The Health Care Select Sector SPDR Fund, ticker XLV;And the Vanguard Consumer Staples Index Fund ETF Shares, ticker VDC.The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 409 points at Wednesday's low before recovering to finish the day 1% lower. Bond yields and concerns around U.S.-China trade kept a lid on stocks in the session, extending previous losses.

SPDR funds are a family of exchange-traded funds traded in the United States, Europe, and Asia-Pacific and managed by State Street Global Advisors. Informally, they are also known as Spyders or Spiders. SPDR is a trademark of Standard and Poor's Financial Services LLC, a subsidiary of McGraw Hill Financial. The name is an acronym for the first member of the family, the Standard & Poor's Depositary Receipts, now the SPDR S&P 500, which is designed to track the S&P 500 stock market index. For a long time, this fund was the largest ETF in the world. SSGA also manage the SPDR Gold Shares, which for a while was the second-largest ETF in the world. As of August 2012, they are the first and second largest exchange-traded products in the world. This video is targeted to blind users.

Making Your Investments Pay  Equity Income ETFs
https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do The allure of dividend investing is simple to understand. Regular cash payments from the company provide much needed retirement income, enhanced returns via dividend reinvestment and helps keep away the cold hand of inflation. Unfortunately, 2008 is shaping up to be one lousy year for stocks and those in equity income funds are feeling the brunt of the damage. These funds often have a healthy dose of financial stocks, and as we have seen so far in this crisis, dividends are not guaranteed payments. Many banks have cut their distributions to shareholders repeatedly over the proceeding months. But in the current market place, we are facing an interesting conundrum. High yield once meant risky yield. As investors ran to anything that showed signs of pure safety, stock prices fell. Today, solid dividend paying companies are trading for a fraction of what they did only a few months ago. Long-term investors can lock in 5% dividend rates, destroying the paltry rates on treasury bonds. The three month T-bill was recently trading at 0.01% and the 10-year at under 2.75%. (For an in-depth look into ETFs, read our Exchange Traded Funds Tutorial.) Taking the ETF ApproachWhile there are many equity income style mutual funds available for purchase, nothing beats exchange traded funds (ETF) in terms of operating expenses. Luckily for investors, all of the major ETF sponsors have such funds in their arsenal. My favorite in the sector due to its low allocation to financial stocks, currently at only 23.7%, is the Vanguard High Yield Dividend ETF (NYSE:VYM). The fund is based off of the FTSE High Dividend Yield Index which tracks U.S. companies that pay higher than average dividends, not including real estate investment trusts. The ETF also holds the largest basket of stocks at 531. These include investments in Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) and rural telecom provider Windstream (NYSE:WIN). The expense ratio for the fund is relatively low at 0.25% compared to 0.40% for its mutual fund counterpart High Dividend Yield Index Fund Investor Shares (VHDYX) The fund is currently yielding 4.35% and is down about 35% for the year The State Street Dividend SPDR (AMEX:SDY) is in essence a smaller, more concentrated version of the Vanguard fund. The dividend Spider comprises 51 common stocks in the Standard & Poor's High Yield Dividend Aristocrats Index. The fund has a nearly 60% weighting toward financial and utility stocks. With Synovus Financial (NYSE:SNV) and Consolidated Edison (NYSE:ED) counted as top holdings. The ETF yielded 5.36% and has a cheap expense ratio of 0.35%. (Learn more about these types of investments in The Lowdown On Index Funds.) For investors who believe that the worst of credit crisis is behind us and that financial stocks are close to a bottom, the Powershares High Yield Equity Dividend Achievers Portfolio (AMEX:PEY) is for you. The fund has the highest allocation to banks, insurance and monetary service stocks out of any of the ETFs o

ETFs & Funds  Tracking ETF Losers Can Be Valuable To Your Investment Strategy.
http://www.investors.com/etfs-and-funds/etfs/tracking-etf-losers-can-be-valuable-to-your-investment-strategy/ ETFs & Funds Tracking ETF Losers Can Be Valuable To Your Investment Strategy. Some ETF dogs could end up winning the race. (©pripir - Fotolia/stock.adobe.com) What are ETF investors fretting about these days? A whole lot, but mostly over the stubborn fact that there are few bargains to be had across the broad U.S. stock market and broad fixed income market. "I have been confronted in almost every client conversation I have with stories about soaring high valuations," said Martin Small, head of U.S. iShares exchange traded funds at BlackRock. "Nothing is cheap." ETF investors can borrow from the popular "Dogs of the Dow" strategy to find value investments, he told IBD in a phone interview. The Dogs theory recommends investing annually in the 10 highest-yielding companies of the blue-chip index. The thinking is that these "dogs" may be oversold and likely to rebound in price. Research shows this strategy outperforms the overall stock market in the long term. It has inspired several ETFs including ALPS Sector Dividend Dogs (SDOG). Small believes investors may be rewarded with a similar-but-different approach using ETFs. It takes advantage of the granular exposure to specific regions and industries that ETFs offer. The goal is to find the "Dogs of ETFs" that have sold off irrationally but offer value relative to the market. This is what the process involves, using iShares ETFs as an example: Screen the list of funds using price returns rather than dividend yield as the traditional Dogs strategy and Dogs-based funds do. The poorest performers will include funds that are cheap or oversold. Some of these may offer an attractive opportunity. Small suggests investors evaluate the performance of funds over both the shorter term (year-to-date, for example) and longer periods (one, three and five years). For example, here's what investors can learn looking at the current iShares ETF dogs. The 25 worst-performing iShares ETFs year to date show two broad areas that have been beaten down: foreign developed markets and health care. Nasdaq Biotechnology (IBB) crumbled 27% through Nov. 3. and iShares MSCI Europe Financials (EUFN) 11%. Over the same period, iShares Core S&P 500 (IVV), which tracks the broad U.S. stock market, advanced 4%. To Small, IBB seems oversold for a sector with favorable intellectual properties and strong sales. The fund's 181 stock holdings include Celgene (CELG), Gilead Sciences (GILD), Biogen (BIIB). Its negative trend coincided with scrutiny of drug pricing ahead of the Nov. 8 presidential election. That could mean a rally is in store for drugmakers after the political risks abate. In the case of EUFN, a turnaround is likely to depend on monetary policy having its desired effects. It has 30% of its assets in the U.K., where Brexit continues to cause uncertainty, and 5% in Italy, embroiled in bank loan troubles.

4 Smart Beta ETFs That Pay Dividends (DVY, LMT)
https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do Dividends appeal to the broad majority of investors. They are particularly appealing in low interest rate environments, like that of 2016, when leaving assets in cash fails to keep up with inflation. The potential for reinvestment through a dividend reinvestment plan is strongly desirable. Combine this with favorable tax treatment and an income-producing stream, and it is easy to understand why investors seek dividends. Investors wanting to focus on dividend investment may want to consider smart-beta exchange-traded funds (ETFs). These funds follow an alternative weighting strategy from traditional ETFs that track ordinary indexes. Smart-beta ETFs are a mix of passive and active investing that typically use a variety of fundamental and technical strategies. They provide investors who believe markets are priced inefficiently with a cost-effective product that has the objective of maximizing returns, reducing risk and providing diversification. These four smart-beta ETFs have an investment objective of providing investors with strong dividend exposure. IShares Select Dividend ETF The iShares Select Dividend ETF (NYSEARCA: DVY) was launched by iShares in November 2003. The fund’s objective is to track the Dow Jones U.S. Select Dividend Index. It invests the majority of assets in instruments that make up the underlying index. The benchmark index used measures the performance of stocks that have provided consistently high relative dividend yields over a long period. Lockheed Martin Corporation (NYSE: LMT) is the fund’s top-weighted allocation at 4.1%, followed by CME Group Inc. (NASDAQ: CME) with 3.04% and Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX) at 2.56%. The iShares Select Dividend ETF is one of the larger funds of its category with $14.52 billion in net assets. It has an expense ratio of 0.39%, slightly below the category average of 0.45%. As of May 20, 2016, the fund had returned 8.72% year-to-date (YTD), 10.14% over the past three years and 12.22% over the past five years. The ETF pays investors a yield of 3.2%. SPDR S&P Dividend ETF The SPDR S&P Dividend ETF (NYSEARCA: SDY) seeks to replicate the price and yield performance of the S&P High Yield Dividend Aristocrats Index. The ETF was formed in 2005. The referenced index is designed to measure the performance of the 50 highest dividend-yielding S&P Composite 1500 Index stocks that have a history of increasing their dividends each year for at least 20 consecutive years. The ETF's top three holdings are HCP Inc. (NYSE: HCP) at 2.68%, AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) at 1.97% and Chevron Corporation at 1.74%. The SPDR S&P Dividend ETF has net assets of $13.05 billion and an expense ratio of 0.35%. The fund has a five-year return of 12.45% and a three-year return of 9.96%. It also had an impressive YTD return of 9.59%, as of May 20, 2016. The fund pays a 2.42% yield.

Top Smart Beta ETFs for High Dividend Stocks (DVY, DYM)
https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do After a rocky start for the stock market in 2016, investors have been looking for safer way to ensure revenue streams during volatility, such as equity securities that steadily pay high dividends. Historically, companies that offer dividends tend to be larger and more well-established, and so are popular for investors who are looking for some downside protection. One way to increase exposure is through an exchange-traded fund that focuses specifically on stocks with high dividend payments. These are the largest US-traded high-dividend yield smart beta ETFs according to ETF.com, as of September 22, 2016.

Top 5 ETFs of the Year
https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do Five exchange-traded funds have been top performers in 2016, based on year-to-date returns and dividend yield. These ETFs were chosen as long-term investment vehicles, not speculative plays or momentum trades. We limited our choices to ETFs that exclusively buy U.S. equities as their top holdings. We also looked for strong dividends to provide income. As of December 10, 2016, these five ETFs provided reliable returns above 17%, with dividends ranging from 1.34% to 3.5%. Though ETFs trade daily in the same way that stocks do, investors who want to build wealth over the long term do not often day trade ETFs. (See also: How to Day Trade Volatility ETFs.) These selections are intended to be considered as part of a stable and diversified portfolio. That said, in the event any of these ETFs start performing poorly, investors can easily sell shares and seek other opportunities. However, performance has been steady for the group on this list. The investment vehicles below have provided returns of 6.06% to 21.39% since their inception. All of these ETFs have inception dates ranging back no further than 2003. One fund is only a year old. Young funds are often agile, responding to changing market conditions quickly and effectively.
