This Week: SuperDividend ETF and Long View on Dividend Stocks

It’s been an interesting week in the world of stocks. The U.S. stock market may be tanking, but that doesn’t mean that all stocks are going to be losers. Indeed, some developments this week might be indicative of a better future for dividend stocks.

SuperDividend ETF Debuted

Global X unveiled the SuperDividend ETF (SDIV), a fund based on the Solactive Global SuperDividend Index, provided by company with its headquarters in Germany. The fund consists of 100 companies, equally weighted. The companies included are notable because they are among the ranks of the equities with the highest dividend yields in the world. The idea is that you can take advantage of dividend stocks from around the world with help from this ETF. You can use this ETF to help you earn monthly income from some of the highest dividend yielders. The annual fund operating expense on SDIV is 0.79%.

Dividend Stocks to Prove Good Investments 10 Years Down the Road

Even with the Dow below 12,000 today, some people aren’t concerned with the short-term hiccups in the stock market. Indeed, CNBC reports that Laurence Fink, the CEO of BlackRock, thinks that dividend stocks will prove to be a better investment in the next 10 years than bonds. Fink suggests that now is the time to buy large-cap global stocks offering dividends.

Common Theme: Global Dividend Stocks

This week’s common theme seemed to be global dividend stocks. A little diversity away from U.S. investments is being encouraged, and this can be accomplished with global stocks. The fact that there are a number of high quality dividend paying stocks originating in other countries is likely to be a draw as well.

So, even with the depressing stock market performance this week, there might be hope for the future. Especially if you are interested in using global dividend stocks to help you out.
