NEW YORK ( ETF Expert) --There are times when I like what an exchange-traded fund asset is offering the investment public... at least in theory. Yet, over time, an ETF may fall short on things like tracking error, performance, methodological changes, liquidity and provider commitment.In the case of ALPS Sector Dividend Dogs (SDOG), the relative newcomer's theoretical construct appears sound. More importantly, the early indications are positive for SDOG -- from "trade-ability" via the reasonable bid-ask spread to performance that compares favorably with Vanguard High Dividend Yield (VYM).
