Which ETF Should You Choose?

Both NOBL & SDY have the same expense ratio so the choice comes down to preference. NOBL hold fewer stocks because they only include companies who have increased their dividend for at least 25 years.

On the other hand, SDY tracks companies that increased their dividend for at least 20 years. You own more companies by purchasing SDY and this can increase your diversify over the long run.

All in all, we prefer NOBL due to owning fewer, higher quality companies that should outperform over the long haul.
