On Monday you read the first edition of the new weekly economics digest. Today is the first investing digest. Check in every week for “Market Monday” and “Finance Friday” in addition to the original finance, economics, and business articles that I post in between.
Quote of the Day
Investment of the Week
The Global X SuperDividend ETF (SDIV) invests in high yield dividend stocks throughout the world. Its distribution yield is 7.05% with monthly payouts, making it a good source of regular income. About half of it is allocated within the US, with about 14% in emerging markets. About half of it is invested in real estate with allocations of less than 10% spread out among other sectors. Most of it is invested in small-cap and mid-cap companies. This is a great way to earn growth from small international companies while earning significant income as well.
Also check out my recent Seeking Alpha piece about the Global X SuperDividend Emerging Markets ETF (SDEM).
