So when are you going to license a Dividend Champions index to Vanguard or Schwab so we can invest in a low-cost Dividend Champions ETF or mutual fund? :-)

I would definitely be interested in investing in it.

Why pay ETF or MF fees when you can invest directly in the companies that have been increasing dividends for 25+ years?

I don't foresee anyone day trading them ;-)

This was my initial reaction too, but if you have only a modest amount of money the brokerage fees you are charge to buy all the stocks in the first place will deplete your capital, and, if you only have a small amount to invest it can be a significant piece of the pie; those fees are fixed and don't change depending on whether you buy one share, or a thousand.

I don't have large amounts of capital to invest, so I would prefer the instant diversification.

Also, ETF and mutual fund fees continue to drop. I'm invested in the Schwab U.S. Dividend Equity ETF, which only has an expense ratio of 0.07%:

That's a tolerable trade-off for me to get diversification and not have to worry about stock selection.

Well, one problem is building an index from the companies and there are any number of ways to do (weight) that...and I'm not really looking to do more work...;)

Hi David!

First of all, thanks for the tremendous amount of info and analysis you bring to dividend investing....awesome.

FYI ( and if I'm reading it right ), on the Excel spreadsheet "summary" page for the Dividend Champions it shows an average yield of over 10%...some sort of error?

Thanks again for the tons of hard work!

Cheers!

Yes...the formula shows that it draws from cell R63, but it should be E63, a typo caused (in part) by the vanishing letters on my keyboard! The correct percentage should be 2.93%.

Hi there my name is Gary and fairly new to fool but have almost quit chasing stocks, but love anything above 10%, dividend especially the monthly dividend stocks, like ARR. I have the feeling that soon REIT's won't be the leaders, I am into Healthare but would like your opinion on the next investments you are looking into ?

Gary, the higher the dividend the higher the risk.

REIT's can pay higher than average dividends due to their structure.

You can go to the REIT board for more info:
