ALPS International Sector Dividend Dogs ETF

IDOG Fund Description

IDOG tracks an equal-weighted index that selects the 5 companies with the highest dividend yield in each of the 10 GICS sectors from international developed markets.

IDOG Factset Analytics Insight

IDOG launched at the end of June 2013 with a mandate to provide a high dividend yield from a portfolio of stocks with a balanced sector profile. The idea is to apply a modified version of the "Dogs of the Dow" strategy to a global universe of stocks. The term "global" is also modified, as IDOG only selects stocks from developed economies, excluding the US and Canada. The fund takes the 5-highest-yielding stocks from each of the 10 major sectors, for a total of 50 holdings. The goal is to eliminate the counter-cyclical sector biases present in traditional yield-weighted dividend strategies by picking the same number of stocks from each sector. The fund's sister product, SDOG, applies the same strategy to the S&P 500. IDOG isn't cheap, but seems fairly priced in context.
