- The C-Tracks Exchange Traded Notes Miller/Howard Strategic Dividend Reinvestor (NYSEARCA:DIVC) will an index of 30 equal weighted domestic stocks, selected for their current dividend yield and the expected growth of that yield, along with other fundamental indicators.
- "Whereas traditional market cap-weighted indexes tend to overweight overvalued stocks, we try to improve on the model by equal weighting and limiting selection to companies that share positive factors such as dividend growth, yield, valuation, and profitability—all through a disciplined rules-based process with regular rebalancing" said Lowell G. Miller, founder and CIO of Miller/Howard, in a press release for the new index.

- The First Trust Value Line Dividend Index ETF (FVD +0.2%) has done its job well, writes Morningstar's Abby Woodham, but the 70 basis point expense ratio is "a relic of the days before the ETF price wars." It may have been acceptable a decade ago, but is "unjustifiable" when similar ETFs are available for just a handful of basis points per year.
- FVD's portfolio looks like a low-vol strategy that emphasizes yield, she writes, and the 5-year standard deviation is one of the lowest among dividend ETFs.
- Possible alternatives: Vanguard Dividend Appreciation (VIG +0.1%) with 0.10% expenses, Vanguard High Dividend Yield Index (VYM -0.1%) also charging 10 bps, Schwab U.S. Dividend Equity ETF (SCHD +0.1%) - the cheapest in the category at 0.07% - SPDR S&P Dividend (SDY +0.1%) with 0.35% expenses, WisdomTree Equity Income (DHS) with 0.38% expenses, and iShares Select Dividend (DVY +0.3%) charging 0.40%.

- Comparing metrics for the two of the more popular dividend strategies - the SPDR S&P Dividend ETF (SDY +0.4%) and the Vanguard Dividend Appreciation ETF (VIG +0.7%) - against the two largest large-cap value ETFs - the Russell 1000 Value ETF (IWD +0.9%) and Vanguard's Value ETF (VTV +0.7%) - Larry Swedroe finds valuations quite stretched for the dividend players.
- The SDY sports a P/E ratio of 17.2x, price/book ratio of 2.5x, and price/cash flow ratio of 10.5x, with the VIG showing similar. The value ETFs have P/E below 14x, price/books below 2x, and price/cash flow below 6x.
- The popularity of dividends has led to a pleasing rise in the values of the stocks, but has thus reduced expected future returns, reminds Swedroe. And for taxable accounts, it's even worse as dividends are less tax-efficient than capital gains.
