Here is a look at ETFs that currently offer attractive income opportunities. The high-yield candidates included in this list meet three sets of criteria. First, each of these funds is deemed to be a high-yield prospect because it boasts a trailing 12-month dividend yield upwards of 5%.
Second, each of these ETFs also boasts over $100 million in total assets under management to help steer investors away from less established funds.
Third, each of these ETFs also meets a minimum 20-day average trading volume of 0.5 million. As always, investors of all experience levels are advised to use stop-loss orders and practice disciplined profit-taking techniques.
