    The SPIVA scorecard - matching active managers vs. index funds - once again shows how much the odds are stacked against going active. But one area where managers won is international small-caps (SCZ, VSS, DLS), with just 15% of them lapped by the index last year (10% over the last 3). In such an illiquid, poorly understood corner of the market, smart managers can indeed add alpha.

    Small-cap dividend ETFs (DES, DLS, DFE, DGS, DFJ, EES) led the pack in 2012 performance domestically and globally, followed by mid-caps (DON, DIM, EZM) and large-caps (DLN, DOL, EPS). Among strategy-based ETFs, it was preferreds (PGF, PFF) and buybacks (PKW) that outperformed. See here for full dividend ETF performance data.

    The environment seems to favor healthy dividend stocks, and investors are rushing in ($12.6B in inflows to dividend-stock ETFs this year) - but they may be a "little overrated." Beware dividend traps, an average yield that still isn't that high, and shares that will miss out on any big rally. (More ideas in Investing for Income)
