Investing in Dividend ETFs: Top 4 Picks for Consistent Returns

It has become increasingly harder to identify great dividend stocks recently. With the yields of most dividend-paying stocks below 4% and bank interest rates closer to 4%, people gravitate towards those higher rates.

It makes sense. People want the safety and comfort of a higher rate of return instead of waiting and hoping that a company's stock will rise.

Here are The Top Dividend ETFs for 2023


SCHD: Schwab U.S. Dividend Equity ETF

SCHD has been hitting the rounds with much news about it recently. It has a higher dividend of 3.37% and a dividend growth rate of 12% over the last ten years.

Vanguard ETFs are some of the best to choose from, but if you are looking for an excellent ETF for dividends, don't look any further. VYM is an exceptional dividend ETF that competes significantly with SCHD.

VYM: Vanguard High Yield Dividend ETF

VIG is Vanguard's Dividend Appreciation ETF that seeks to track those large-cap companies that have increased their dividends over the last ten years. It follows the S&P U.S. Dividend Growers Index and holds about 289 stocks.

VIG: Vanguard Dividend Appreciation ETF

DGRO is the iShares version of a dividend growth ETF. It has focused on companies growing their dividend for five consecutive years. Their yield is only at 2.39%, and that is much less than both SCHD and VYM.
