This ETF is linked to the WisdomTree Dividend Index, which offers exposure to dividend paying large-cap companies that exhibit value characteristics within the U.S. equity market. Investors with a longer-term horizon should consider the importance of large 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. DTD is linked to an index consisting of roughly 830 holdings and although the fund holds an impressive number of securities exposure is surprisingly heavy in the top ten holdings; more than one-quarter of the assets goes to the top ten. DTD offers investors broad exposure to dividend paying companies, giving investors a much wider net than the other dividend focused firms in the space. As a result, DTD could be a better pick for long-term buy and hold investors than some of the other products, plus it has a much lower expense ratio to boot.
