iShares Dow Jones Select Dividend Index
Ticker: DVY

This ETF tracks the Dow Jones U.S. Select Dividend Index, which includes 100 stocks selected by yield and then screened for dividend growth and payout ratio. The $9.7 billion fund has a 3.4% yield and a midcap focus (though top holdings include Lorillard (LO), Lockheed Martin (LMT), and Chevron (CVX)). With an assortment of beaten-down stocks and a big bet on defensive plays like utilities and consumer staples, this ETF is more contrarian than some peers. Its 12-month return is 12.1%.
