Key points to note:

 

  1. WisdomTree’s Equity Income ETFs tilt around defensive sectors such as energy, utilities and financials, offering an approach that hunts for valuation opportunities in different regional equity markets.
  2. The yield premium attained with WisdomTree’s Equity Income approach was harnessed by three key components:
  • By screening for the highest dividend-yielding segment of the stock market, all non-dividend payers were automatically excluded from the index, unlike market-cap weighted indices, where size will potentially expose investors to low yields or non-dividend payers. 
  • By weighting equities by total cash-dividends as opposed to just dividend yield, the risks to value traps were mitigated, as stocks demonstrating the largest cash dividends received the highest weight.
  • Through the annual rebalance, sufficient scope allowed for value opportunities to emerge and for expensive growth stocks to be removed. Over several rebalancing cycles, a yield premium over market-cap weighted strategies is maintained, along with the potential for better risk-adjusted returns.
