Recommended Posts

Here's the value of the Vanguard S&P 500 ETF tracker at the start of February and most recent price:

Here's the SPDR  S&P U.S. Dividend Aristocrats by comparison

The SPDR index has an annual yield of 2.53% and a five-year annualized return of 12.19%

The Vanguard index has an annual yield of 1.47% and a five-year annualized return of 16.39%

 

So my question is, why would anybody choose the Dividend Aristocrat index over the S&P 500 index?
