The Monthly Dividend 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 45 all-ETF model portfolios available at ETFdb.com, is designed for investors who wish to maximize current returns with a focus on monthly dividend-paying ETFs. This investment strategy may appeal to those who are looking to generate a monthly income stream while still maintaining a balanced, well-diversified portfolio.
Dividend-paying securities have long had appeal across a wide variety of investors, and the current economic landscape in particular has further bolstered the popularity of these securities. Given the sluggish economic recovery across much of the developed world coupled with looming European debt drama, investors of all walks are opting for “safer,” income-generating investments in the current environment in lieu of chasing after lucrative capital gains [see also How To Pick The Right ETF Every Time with a free ETFdb membership].
The distinguishing feature of the Monthly Dividend ETFdb Portfolio is that both its stock and bond components pay out dividend distributions on a monthly basis. This portfolio can serve to enhance your current income by allowing you to collect multiple dividend checks each and every month without taking on excessive risk. The equity component is internationally diversified, and each of the holdings is focused on high-yielding, dividend-paying securities. As such, investors can expect a fair degree of volatility in certain environments, although historically dividend-paying securities have proven to take on “safe haven” appeal in times of equity market turbulence. The fixed income component offers exposure to investment-grade government and corporate debt with a focus on the U.S. fixed-income market; exposure to “junk bonds” is also included, helping to beef up the portfolio’s current income and enhance risk-adjusted returns over the long-haul.
The complete Monthly Dividend ETFdb Portfolio is available to ETFdb Pro members or with a free 7-day trial to ETFdb Pro. Also check out our Cheapskate Hedge Fund ETFdb Portfolio as well as our King Dollar ETFdb Portfolio.
Included with the ETFdb Pro subscription are more than 45 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.
