The best dividend funds on the market all share one thing in common: They’re not one-size-fits-all.
Wall Street boasts quite literally hundreds of dividend mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs), and that spans a number of styles, geographies, costs and share classes. Are you interested in international dividend growth, or do you want to lasso as much nominal yield as possible out of American companies? Those angles (and far more) are covered in spades.
Combine that with all the variables investors have to consider — risk tolerance, investing time horizon, even 401k availability — and you have a situation in which one investor’s trash may well be another investor’s treasure.
Of course, I wouldn’t call any of the dividend funds we’re looking at today “trash.”
