The ALPS Sector Dividend Dogs ETF (NYSE: SDOG – $44.05) declared a third quarter distribution on September 20, 2017 in the amount of $0.36749 per share. Annualizing this payout, the fund distributes $1.47 per share, equal to a yield of 3.3% at current levels. The dividend is payable on September 27, 2017 to shareholders of record on September 22, 2017. The payout is slightly below last quarter’s dividend of $0.37915. I continue to like SDOG for conservative diversification for income-seeking investors. Including distributions, the ETF has provided a 52-week total return of 10.2%.
