Dividend Income Portfolio
The Dividend Income Portfolio is a well-rounded, income-focused investment strategy that combines three key income-producing asset classes: high-yield corporate bonds, real estate, and dividend-paying equities. By allocating equal portions to the iShares iBoxx $ High Yield Corporate Bond ETF (HYG), the Vanguard Real Estate ETF (VNQ), and the Invesco High Yield Equity Dividend Achievers™ ETF (PEY), this portfolio aims to generate a consistent stream of income with an emphasis on dividends while offering the potential for capital appreciation.
The HYG component provides exposure to a diversified pool of high-yield corporate bonds, offering attractive yields. The VNQ allocation grants investors access to a wide range of real estate investment trusts (REITs), known for their steady income generation through dividends and property appreciation. Lastly, the PEY portion targets high-quality dividend-paying stocks with a history of increasing their dividends over time.
This portfolio is designed for investors seeking a balance between income generation through dividends and capital appreciation, with a higher risk tolerance than conservative income-focused investors.
