Which Dividend Growth ETF Should You Choose?
VIG has the better long term performance plus the fund is cheaper. The only reason to choose NOBL over VIG is if you want to exclusively own dividend artistrocrats. NOBL is more selective since it only includes companies that have increased their dividend for at least 25 years.
