FDL Fund Description

The First Trust Morningstar Dividend Leaders ETF tracks a dividend-weighted index of US companies with consistent and sustained dividend payments. The fund holds roughly 100 securities and excludes REITs.

FDL Factset Analytics Insight

FDL tries to generate a juicy dividend yield by building its portfolio on the basis of historical yield performance. Its rule set requires a company's current dividend to be higher than it was five years ago, and less than its forward EPS estimates. The index chooses the 100 highest-yielding firms, and weights them by the dollar value of dividend payments. This approach causes FDL to diverge from our neutral benchmark, and it especially tends to under-weight the tech sector, where companies have not established a long track-record of dividends. It also excludes REITs, which may suit investors who are bearish on real estate, while making big bets on traditional dividend paying sectors like utilities and consumer cyclicals. Boasting excellent onscreen and underlying liquidity, FDL trades easily for investors at a retail or institutional level. Its expense ratio is above-average for its segment, but the fund tends to track well.
