You may find this thread informative for a divi ETF

Quote part of thread;
<So, for the last 9 years, if you had bought an equal dollar amount of VDC (Vanguard Consumer Staples ETF) and BRK/A at the beginning of the year, and held till today; every single lot of VDC would have beaten the BRK/A lot bought that year, except since 2012. And paid a dividend of 2.5...3% consistently on top of the price appreciation.>

<In other words, $1M put in VDC on Jan 1 2005 or thereabouts would beat $1M put in BRK/A on Jan 1 2005 or thereabouts. Similarly for Jan 1, 2008 or Jan 1, 2010; but BRK/A would beat VDC if you bought both on Jan 1 2012 or thereabouts.>
