2 ETFs For Continued Strain In The Labor Market

March 13, 2012


With the economy growing but the job market remaining soft, investors might still find defensive, dividend-focused ETFs to be their best bet, according to an article on The Street that highlighted two ETFs.

The article mentioned these two funds:

  • Vanguard High Dividend Yield (NYSEArca: VYM)—much of the hype around dividend investing has died down, but many components of the ETF continue to reach 52-week price highs.
  • EG Shares Low Volatility Emerging Market Dividend (NYSEArca: HILO)—HILO is a solid option with a yield above 6 percent that holds stocks screened for relatively low volatility.
