Analyst Report

This ETF is linked to the Morningstar Dividend Leaders Index, which offers exposure to large and mega cap firms that have shown dividend consistency and dividend sustainability in years past. Investors with a longer-term horizon should consider the importance of mega and cap value stocks and the benefits they can add to any well-balanced portfolio including dividends and rock solid stability. Companies within this segment are often considered some of the safest firms in the world and tend to be in more stable industries as well, potentially skewing some portfolios that are heavy in value securities. FDL is linked to an index consisting of roughly 100 holdings and exposure is tilted most heavily towards utilities, telecoms and energy. However, the fund is highly concentrated in its top holdings; the top ten make up more than three-fifths of the total assets of the fund. Nevertheless, thanks to this fund's focus on dividends and cheap price, FDL could definitely make up a solid portion of a portfolio especially for those looking for more large cap dividend exposure exposure.
