This ETF comprises stocks (mainly blue chips) that have increased their dividends for 10 years or more. It will lag in a roaring bull market but holds up better than the S&P in bear markets. Combination of steadily rising dividends with lower losses in a bear market should create a Total Return which beats the S&P.
