Dividend ETFs

Dividend is a payment made by a corporation to its shareholders. The dividend investment strategy is based on purchasing and holding dividend-paying stocks. The major rule of the dividend strategy is buying stocks that pay dividends continually. Exchange Traded Funds build a portfolio of companies that pay dividends. Some of the ETFs invest in such companies from many different fields e.g. both small and large companies. The dividend-paying companies are mostly among the most stable and the least volatile companies on the market. By using this strategy investors may increase their returns from markets and diversify their portfolios.
