Top Holdings Of Dividend ETFs (Part 1: The Top 50)

From time to time, I compile a virtual portfolio consisting of the top 50 holdings of dividend ETFs. To compile the portfolio, I analyze the top 25 holdings in each ETF and assign scores proportional to the size of each holding. Summing the scores of individual holdings allow me to rank them by popularity, and so to find the top holdings of these dividend ETFs.

For this edition, I analyzed 47 dividend ETFs. Of the 1,154 tickers found in the top 25 holdings of these ETFs, 389 are unique. Pfizer (PFE) and Verizon Communications (VZ) appear in 25 of the 47 dividend ETFs, the most of any stocks. However, Exxon Mobil (XOM) tops the list by aggregate score and Apple (AAPL) is the  runner-up, replacing Microsoft (MSFT) which drops to third place.

Dividend growth investors can compare their own portfolios to the top 50 and identify candidates for analysis and possible investment.

In Part 2 of this article, I'll showcase the top 10 stocks in each GICS sector. Looking at the ranked stocks outside of the top 50 provides should additional insight. For example, there are no Materials sector stocks in the top 50 and it would be useful to see the top-ranked Material sector stocks regardless of overall ranking. Investors looking to build a diversified portfolio might find such information useful.

To see the top 50 holdings of dividend ETFs for November 2018, please read this article at Seeking Alpha.
