SPYD Factset Analytics Insight
Launched originally in October 2015, SPYD offers a no-nonsense approach to high yield in the US large-cap space. The fund ranks all dividend payers in the S&P 500 by indicated yield (most recent dividend times dividend frequency over share price) and culls the top 80. SPYD does not include any dividend sustainability or quality screens baked in to some peer ETFs. The ETF equally weights its stocks, while some income-focused competitors weight by yield. (Speaking of competitors, we place SPYD in the Large-Cap segment due to its S&P 500 universe, but SDY, DVY and other ETFs in the US High Dividend Yield segment are worthy peers too.) We expect hefty sector biases from SPYD, and certainly higher yield (but not necessarily higher total returns) than vanilla large-cap funds. Note that the fund’s underlying index is also new as of SPYD’s launch. SPYD charges a low fee.
Prior to October 16, 2017 the fund traded under the name SPDR S&P 500 High Dividend ETF.
