Ranked top 1: http://www.dividenddetective.com/dividend_etfs.htm I am thinking of verifying the YTD returns using Yahoo Finance data: http://finance.yahoo.com/q/hp?s=SDIV&a=05&b=9&c=2011&d=07&e=23&f=2012&g=d I take 8/22/2012 price (A) and 12/30/2011 price (B), and calculate A/B - 1 The problem is: which price shall I use? "Close" Price or "Adjusted Close" Price? If I use the "Adjusted Close" Price, the YTD return is a whopping 12%! Am I missing something here? Thanks!
