Interesting blog.

Are the dividend aristocrats available as an ETF? Is that what the WisdomTree product is all about?

On November 1st, I published a post noting ETFs that have a dividend focus. The title of the post is: Exchange Traded Funds With A Dividend Focus. The post can be found about halfway down the right side of my blog under the Blog Archive section.

I hope you continue to find my blog of interest.
