All holdings must have increased their dividends for at least 20 years, and the ETF weights the portfolio based on yields (higher-yielding stocks make up a higher percentage of total holdings). As such, industries that account for the portfolio's largest share include consumer staples, financials, utilities and industrials. The fund has a 0.35% expense ratio and offers two types of distributions - dividends and capital gains (which management distributes in the fourth quarter).
