High-Yield Prospects: May 16 Edition

Here is a look at ETFs that currently offer attractive income opportunities. The high-yield candidates included in this list meet two sets of criteria. First, each of these funds is deemed to be a high-yield prospect because it boasts an annual 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. As always, investors of all experience levels are advised to use stop-loss orders and practice disciplined profit-taking techniques.
