NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Dividend investing is becoming increasingly popular as the U.S. equity market continues to log more years without meaningful advancement. Too many people make the mistake of seeking out yield at the expense of price appreciation which is a big mistake. Investors can use both ETFs and individual stocks to construct a narrow-based portfolio that captures both yield and growth potential.The materials sector is a good place for this exercise as it takes in a lot of themes, brings in a lot of different foreign countries with favorable attributes and has good, long-term prospects behind it -- in my opinion that makes it a good sector to add volatility to the portfolio.
