This ETF offers a way to invest in dividend-paying stocks from the Asia Pacific region, a relatively narrow segment of the global equity universe that could potentially be appealing to a wide range of investors. DVYA could be useful for those looking to beef up the current returns from their equity holdings, and might also be a useful way to lower overall volatility by focusing on dividend paying securities. Though this ETF could be used in long-term portfolio, it's probably most useful as a tactical tool for shifting exposure to this segment of the market for a shorter period of time. As the name suggests, DVYA maintains a relatively shallow portfolio of stocks, which results in some material concentrations in a small handful of names. Also, there are some predictable sector tilts in the underlying portfolio, with sectors that are known as big dividend payers receiving some big allocations (though, on the whole, DVYA spreads exposure across all segments of the Asia Pacific economy). DVYA isn't the cheapest tool for gaining exposure to Asia Pacific economies--other products in the Asia Pacific Equities Category take that title--but it is relatively affordable given the objective, and does manage to deliver a considerably higher dividend yield than its peers.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for DVYA on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating.
