Analyst Report

This ETF seeks to replicate an index comprised of stocks that have increased their annual dividend for five consecutive years, an exclusive club that may have obvious appeal to investors looking to enhance current returns generated by the equity portion of their portfolios. PID can also be a useful tool for investors who believe dividend payers have become undervalued, or are poised to outperform their growth counterparts in the current environment. While PID maintains some emerging market exposure, it consists primarily of ex-U.S. developed market stocks, and as such has potential appeal as an alternative to funds like EFA or VEA in a buy-and-hold portfolio. The focus on dividend payers results in a tilt towards certain sector of the international economy, including telecom and energy companies, and it should be noted that the underlying portfolio is considerably smaller than broad-based equity ETFs. PID holds only a fraction the number of stocks that VEA or EFA contain, resulting in greater single security concentration. There is no shortage of alternatives for investors seeking exposure to international dividend payers; IDV, DTH, and DWM are a few intriguing options that may offer similar access with greater depth of holdings.
