Active Management or ETF's ?

Today on CNBC they reported that 90 percent of active funds underperformed passive funds like ETF's.  

TheDividendMachines of 2014 would be considered an active management as we pick stocks.  I just do not buy or sell after the portfolio is established.   We are beating the two passive ETF's that are oriented toward income.   We are beating on capital gains but just barely.  We are killing them on income; and is that not our investment goal?

Take a look at the comparison presented in the table below.

Have a good Labor Day.

I will be on vacation until Monday, September 15, 2014
