” The stock market volatility of late puts into question how much longer the current uptrend can last. Dividend-paying ETFs can cushion the blow of day-to-day gyrations and offer investors something for sitting on their hands. Here’s a look at five of the fattest-dividend paying ETFs on the market and what’s driving there performance.
With the exception of iShares FTSE NAREIT Mortgage REIT ETF (REM), all of these are very thinly traded, so they’ll likely have wider bid-ask spreads than more liquid ETFs and it may take longer for your brokerage to fill an order.
2. iShares MSCI Hong Kong Small Cap (EWHS).
312-month yield: 12.75%.
One-year return: 23.15%.
IBD Relative Strength and Accumulation-Distribution Ratings: 40, B+.
EWHS gapped down $3.79, or 12.75%, on Dec. 18 when it paid out $3.70 a share in income.
EWHS is trading below the 50-day average but above the 200-day line, which means it’s in a weak uptrend. Nearly half of assets are devoted to consumer discretionary companies, a fifth is in financials and one-seventh is in technology. EWHS trades at a slight discount to emerging markets with a price-earnings ratio of 11.89 and price-to-book of 1.03. Emerging markets have a P-E of 12.3 and P-B of 1.58. “
