SDIV: Global, High Dividend Exchange Traded Fund (ETF), Good Diversity.

Are you looking for a single ETF or mutual fund to help give you great diversification and a high dividend?  You should consider an international ETF which produces a high dividend.  SDIV, an ETF (Exchange Traded Fund) from Global-X Funds, does that.

As of June 2014, the 12 Month Dividend Yield is 6.01%.   The Total Annual Fund Operating Expense is 0.58%.     

In terms of country breakdown, 25.81% is invested in the United States, 17.85% in Australia, 9.14% in Canada, 8.14% in France, 7.69% in the U.K., 6.01% in Singapore, and so on.

In terms of industry, Financials occupies 20% of the portfolio, REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts) 15%, Utilities 13.5%, Telecom Services, 12.2%, Mortgage REITs 10.6%, Energy 9.2%, Industrials 5.03%, Consumer Discretionary, 4.8%, Health Care 2.8%, Materials 2.7%, and Info Tech at 2.1%.  

SDIV could be a great way to get high dividend diversification.   And if you can find SDIV in a commission free program by your broker, you could invest in SDIV cheaply (because you have no commission fee) in an automatic investment plan where you invest some regular sum at regular intervals.   Watch your reinvested dividends (especially in a high dividend ETF), grow.   Experts often say that reinvested dividends is a great way to grow your money.
