ETF or Dividend Stocks -

November 20, 2013

Should you use low cost dividend ETF's or buy dividend stocks?

The table below is a comparison of 2013 Dividend Machines and the Spyder ETF that concentrates on dividends; the symbol is SDY.

Individual stocks delivered a little better income and a little better stock price performance. However, I think I will do some back testing with the 2011 dividend machine portfolio to see how it compares over a longer time frame.

I need a research assistant: my data are free.
