This ETF offers exposure to a number of emerging markets, focusing on dividend paying stocks in the developing world. Many emerging markets companies offer substantial distributions, making EDIV a potentially intriguing option for investors looking to enhance current returns to their portfolio. EDIV may be viewed as an alternative to more popular EM ETFs such as VWO and EEM, offering exposure to similar countries but skewing the sector profile towards utilities, financials, and telecoms. It should be noted that EDIV doesn't offer quite the depth of exposure maintained by some broad-based emerging markets ETFs, and that quasi-developed economies such as Taiwan and South Korea find their way into the underlying portfolio. With a competitive expense ratio, EDIV can be a useful tool for fine-tuning international equity exposure. VWO might be a better choice for those looking to minimize expenses, while EMVX could also be appealing for those seeking a value tilt within emerging markets.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for EDIV on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating.
