- The AdvisorShares YieldPro ETF (YPRO), a joint venture with The Elements Group, launched this morning.
- This ETF will hold both long and short term fixed income investments, selected after a screening for yield, volatility, volume and relative strength.
- Noah Hamman, chief executive officer of AdvisorShares, stated in a press release; "in the current interest rate environment where many investors and advisors actively hunt for the dual goals of yield and mitigation of risk, we feel YPRO may help allow the flexibility to potentially achieve both objectives."

- Q4 net dividend increases of $12.7B compared to $8.4B in 2012 Q4, according to S&P. The number of increases (885), however, pales in comparison to the 1,266 "tax-incentivized" hikes from a year ago (there were 649 in 2011).
- Of roughly 10K traded stocks, 51 companies cut payouts in Q4 compared to 154 in the year-earlier quarter.
- Room for more hikes? S&P's Howard Silverblatt notes payout rates - which historically average 52% - continue to remain near their low of 36%. "At this point, we expect Q1 to be a very busy positive period for dividends, with 2014 setting another record for payments."
- The weighted dividend yield off 2.44% compares to 2.6% in Q3 and 2.8% in Q4 of 2012 as boosted payouts aren't quite keeping pace with the strong advance in equity prices.

- Open for trade today is the actively-managed Cambria Foreign Shareholder Yield ETF (FYLD), the global version of Mebane Faber's recently-launched and thus far successful Shareholder Yield ETF (SYLD).
- Faber's methodology relies on what he calls "shareholder yield" - a measure adding buybacks and debt repayment to dividends.
- The new fund's expense ratio is 0.59%, the same as SYLD.
- Other ETFs with a broader idea of what yield is include: TTFS and PKW.

- Dividend ETF fans may soon have three more funds to choose from as Reality Shares files to launch a trio of ETFs. Tickers and fees have not yet been disclosed.
- The Reality Shares Isolated U.S. Dividend Growth Index ETF and The Isolated Global Dividend Growth Index ETF will both be passive strategies, and the Isolated Dividend Growth ETF will be actively managed.
- The company's edge - so it argues - will be a focus on earnings rather than stock price as the measure of potential returns. Isolating the dividend from the stock price can provide positive returns not directly correlated to broader equity or fixed-income trends, says the company.
- Dividend ETFs: DVY, IDV, VIG, SDY, VYM, SDIV, HDV, SCHD, DWX, SYLD, KBWD, PID, DES, DTN, PEY, SPHD, DIV, DHS, LVL, DLN, DTD, DGRW, FDL, DON, PFM, FVD, FGD, DOO, DOL, SDYL, NOBL, DVYL, DEW, HGI, IDOG, DNL, DGRS, DGRE, DVYA, RDIV, QDF, QDEF, EMDG, IQDF, QDYN, IQDY, WDIV, IQDE, FIEG

May. 24, 2013, 12:45 PMMulti-asset income ETFs are here to stay, writes Paul Britt, as Guggenheim's CVY crosses $1B in AUM. It's been around since 2006, but a new entrant, MDIV has pulled in $440M in less than a year. These income funds have no mandate in their search for yield and roam across dividends (DVY), high-yield (HYG), REITs (IYR, VNQ), and MLPs (AMJ) as necessary. One drawback is their somewhat high expense ratios - in the 60-80 bp range, compared, for example, to DVY at 40 bps. Other M-A ETFs: INKM, IYLD, GYLD, HGI. | 2 Comments

HGI vs. ETF Alternatives
The Guggenheim/Zacks International Multi-Asset Income Index ETF (NYSE:HGI), the "Fund", seeks investment results that correspond generally to the performance, before the Fund’s fees and expenses, of an index called the Zacks International Multi-Asset Income Index (the “Zacks International Multi-Asset Income Index ” or “Index”). The Fund will normally invest at least 90% of its total assets in securities that comprise the Index. Guggenheim Advisors, LLC (the "Investment Adviser”) seeks a correlation over time of 0.95 or better between the Fund’s performance and the performance of the Index. A figure of 1.00 would represent perfect correlation. The Fund, using a low cost “passive” or “indexing” investment approach, will seek to replicate, before expenses, the performance of the Zacks International Multi-Asset Income Index. The Index is comprised of 150 stocks selected, based on investment and other criteria, from a universe of international companies, global REITs, master limited partnerships, Canadian royalty trusts, American depositary receipts (“ADRs”) of emerging market companies and U.S. listed closed-end funds that invest in international companies. The companies in the universe are selected using a proprietary strategy developed by Zacks Investment Research, Inc. (“Zacks” or the “Index Provider”).
