I use the Exchange Traded Fund DVY as a realistic example that you should be able to beat. It currently yields 3.6% and grows 6% or 7% (latest reading) per year. However, dividend Exchange Traded Funds are new.Hmm. I thought that was what you're referring to. I just looked on www.ishares.com. Current SEC yield for DVY is 3.58% (pretty close), but the distribution yield is 3.52%. Looking at the distribution history, it appears that the average quarterly distribution for the life of the fund is closer to 0.5, or 2.0 annually. Rather than the current 3.6. Or am I reading that chart wrong?Also, the actual fund price has only gone up from about $55 to the current $65 in 4 years. That's not anywhere near 6% annual growth. More like 2 or 2.5% per year. So, not really sure where you're getting these numbers from.joe
