highest dividend paying ETFs today
Dividend yield (sometimes referred to as the dividend yield ratio) is simply the annual dividend per share divided by price. Since the annual dividend per share for ETFs varies somewhat from quarter to quarter, dividend yield is calculated by summing the most recent four quarters (or most recent 12 months if the ETF distributes on a monthly schedule) of regular dividend payments. For example, if iShares Select Dividend ETF (DVY) paid out $2.45 per share during the past year and the current ETF price is $76.12, its dividend yield would be 3.2% ($2.45 divided by $76.12).

The following table lists the 30 highest dividend paying ETFs (available on major US stock exchanges). The table includes
and can be sorted on: exchange-traded fund ticker symbol, ETF name, fund orientation, yield rank, and dividend yield as well as the ETF's one-day and 12-month percent change. For summary statistics of these 30 highest dividend paying ETFs as well as how they compare to the S&P 500, simply scroll down to view the summary table. This table is updated every day after the close.

FYI -- Orientation refers to the degree of the exchange-traded fund's leverage in addition to whether or not the ETF is an inverse fund. For example, a 2x ETF that tracks the S&P 500 will show a gain of 2% if the S&P 500 is up 1%. A -2x ETF that tracks the S&P 500 will show a loss of 2% if the S&P 500 is up 1%. The following table includes both leveraged and inverse ETFs.
