Analyst Report

This ETF is linked to the FTSE High Dividend Yield 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. VYM is linked to an index consisting of roughly 440 holdings and exposure is tilted most heavily towards consumer, energy, and industrials. Securities are chosen for inclusion in the fund based on their current yield; only the highest yielding companies are chosen. Thanks to this focus, VYM 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, VYM 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.
