SDOG Fund Description

The ALPS Sector Dividend Dogs ETF tracks an equal-weighted index of the five highest-yielding S&P 500 securities in each sector.

SDOG Factset Analytics Insight

SDOG is built around the theory that high-yielding equities tend to appreciate faster than lower-yielding equities. SDOG starts with the S&P 500 and then equally weights the five companies in each GICS sector with the highest dividend yields. It also equal weights those sectors, which introduces permanent sector biases. It reconstitutes its portfolio annually, but it subsequently rebalances that portfolio every quarter. SDOG's methodology causes it to diverge considerably from our segment benchmark with a heavy mid-cap tilt and huge sector biases (at times). It trades well but isn't particularly cheap to hold. In terms of Efficiency, there are a couple issues with SDOG. First, its quarterly rebalancing can cause tracking difficulties. Second, SDOG's expense ratio is higher than many other US large-cap funds, although it compares more favorably with its equal-weighted peers.
