Top Holdings Of Dividend ETFs (Part 2: The Top 10 By Sector)

In Part 1 of this article, I presented a virtual portfolio of the top holdings of 47 dividend ETFs. Using a proportional scoring system that favors larger investments and larger ETFs, I calculate dan aggregate score for each ticker in the top 25 holdings of the dividend ETFs. Sorting the aggregate scores in descending order determined the rank of each stock (ticker).

The top 50 holdings are not distributed evenly among the 11 GICS sectors. For example, not a single Materials sector stock is present in the top 50 holdings. For dividend growth investors interested in diversifying their portfolios, this is not very helpful.

So in Part 2, I'm showcasing the top 10 stocks in each GICS sector. Seeing the top 10 stocks in each sector, along with key ratings and metrics, is quite useful, in my view, and should give readers additional insight into the holdings of dividend ETFs.

Please note that I'm now using the new GICS sectors. On 28 September 2018, some significant changes to the GICS were implemented. Most notably, the Telecommunications Services sector expanded to become the Communications Services sector and now includes some stocks previously classified as Information Technology and Consumer Discretionary stocks.

The changes affect more than 10% of the S&P 500 Index market cap. The changes boost the presence of Communication Services and reduce the weight of the Information Technology and Consumer Discretionary sectors in the S&P 500 Index.

To see the top 10 stocks in each of the new GICS sectors, please read this article at Seeking Alpha.
