This ETF offers exposure to dividend-paying stocks in developed markets outside of the U.S. and Canada, making it a potential cornerstone of a balanced long-term portfolio that may have appeal to investors who value the approach offered by dividend-weighted funds. DOL should be seen as a potential alternative to cap-weighted funds such as EFA or VEA, focusing on the EAFE region. Because the underlying index determines components and allocations based on dividends paid, this ETF may feature a risk/return profile that is unique compared to EFA, including different sector and region allocations (DOL is heavily tilted towards Europe). DOL is more expensive than other developed market ETF options, but for investors who believe that a dividend-weighted approach offers value over the long run, the additional fees will be worthwhile.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for DOL on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating.
