Since August interest rates have been moving higher. The 10-year U.S. Treasury Note’s yield has moved from 60 basis points to 1.6%. On a historical basis, this is still very low. Investors seeking income may have better choices than buying treasuries.
Some ETFs are structured to pay high dividends. These include the JPMorgan Equity Premium Income ETF (NYSE:JEPI), the Global X SuperDividend U.S. ETF (NYSE:DIV), and the Invesco KBW High Dividend Yield Financial ETF (NASDAQ:KBWD). All three are paying dividends that yield more than 6%.
