The 8% Yield ETFdb Portfolio is now available to ETFdb Pro members with a free 7-day trial of the Pro subscription. This new portfolio, one of more than 50 all-ETF model portfolios available at ETFdb.com, is designed for investors who wish to overweight exposure to high-yielding securities across both the stock and bond markets. This investment strategy may appeal to those who want to beef up their portfolio’s current income amid this ultra-low interest rate environment [see Free 7 Simple & Cheap All-ETF Model Portfolios].
The 8% Yield ETFdb Portfolio is well-diversified across both broad and niche segments within the universe of dividend-paying securities. Rather than sticking to traditional, cap-weighted indexes, this ETFdb portfolio focuses on products that strive to deliver a high current income through creative methodologies. Core holdings include ETFs with global exposure that focus on tracking the performance of the highest-yielding securities within each respective universe; one of the funds is focused heavily on domestic securities while another holding is dominated by foreign stocks [see also Mortgage REIT ETFs: 10% Yields + Low Volatility].
The “high yield” theme of this portfolio carries over into the fixed income component as well. The 8% Yield ETFdb Portfolio taps into the most lucrative corner of the fixed income market: junk bonds. One of the core holdings is a high-yield bond ETF that focuses exclusively on U.S. securities rated below investment grade, serving as a viable tool to enhance current income without incurring sky-high levels of volatility. We have also rounded out exposure to emerging markets bonds, resulting in a well-balanced strategy that covers virtually every corner of the global high yield debt market.
The complete 8% Yield ETFdb Portfolio is available to ETFdb Pro members or with a free 7-day trial to ETFdb Pro. Also check out our Monthly Dividend ETFdb Portfolio as well as our Agri-Bull ETFdb Portfolio.
Included with the ETFdb Pro subscription are more than 50 all-ETF model portfolios, including both retirement-focused and more tactical-themed strategies. To see all that is included, a free sample of the Emerging & Frontier Markets ETFdb Portfolio is available to all ETFdb readers.
