    Given the 25% increase in DVY share how come its dividend is less than it was a year ago? I understand that its yield would be lower but given the focus of this ETF why is its dividend less?

    Could be because several companies paid their Q1-2013 dividend in Q4 20120 to beat the expected tax increase. If you look at the year over year comparison you would see that the there was an increase: 2012 - $2.12/share and 2013 was $2.19/share or 3.3% net increase in dividend rate.
