HH A Look At The Christmas Tree Of Top-Ranked ETFs

Dividend-paying securities are the major source of consistent income for investors to create wealth when returns from the equity market are at risk. Dividend-focused products offer safety in the form of payouts while at the same time providing stability as mature companies are less volatile to large swings in stock prices. This is because the companies that pay dividends generally act as a hedge against economic uncertainty and provide downside protection by offering outsized payouts or sizable yields on a regular basis.

The best ETF that could nicely fit the candy decor is Market Vectors Gold Mining ETF (GDX - Free Report), which is crushing the market rout this quarter, climbing nearly 11% and is likely to continue its uptrend in 2019. This is because the stock market rout brought back the allure for the metal, boosting its demand. Notably, the bullion acts as a store of value and hedge against market turmoil.

Now, to light up the tree, let’s add value ETFs like Vanguard Value ETF (VTV - Free Report) that will continue to brighten investors’ portfolio in 2019. Value products seek to capitalize on inefficiencies in the market and have the potential to deliver higher returns with lower volatility compared with growth and blend counterparts. Additionally, these are less susceptible to trending markets and their dividend payments offer safety in times of market turbulence. With AUM of $40.5 billion and an expense ratio of 0.05%, VTV has a Zacks ETF Rank #1.

The Christmas tree of top-ranked ETFs is now ready for investors. May it spread cheer this holiday season.
