February started on a higher note. But after January’s rout on Wall Street, volatility looks poised to persist, at least for the next few weeks. As a consequence, many investors are looking to diversify their portfolios.
In the current inflationary context, one strategy that gets significant attention is steady yields.
Today’s article introduces two exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that could be appropriate for passive-income seekers, such as those approaching or in retirement or those seeking to pay for some regular expenses. 1. Global X SuperDividend US ETF
Current Price: $20.75
52-week range: $17.51 – $21.40
Dividend yield: 5.27%
Expense ratio: 0.45% per year

The top 10 holdings comprise about a quarter of net assets of $704 million.Pharma giant Pfizer (NYSE: PFE ); BP Midstream Partners (NYSE: BPMP ), which is a master limited partnership; real estate investment trusts (REIT) Public Storage (NYSE: PSA ) and CubeSmart (NYSE: CUBE ), which focus on self-storage facilities; public utility American Electric Power (NASDAQ: AEP ) make up some of the leading stocks in the portfolio.In the past 12 months, DIV is up almost 17% and saw a multi-year high in January. However, since then, several names in the fund have come under pressure, and the ETF lost about 0.5% year-to-date (YTD). Nonetheless, we like the diverse and robust names in the portfolio and believe the fund should be on investors’ watchlists. 2.
