2022 was one of the worst performances by the S&P 500. It lost 18.1% this past year, the seventh-worst year on record. Mid-cap dividend stocks to buy fared much better.
The WisdomTree U.S. MidCap Dividend Fund (NYSEARCA:DON) tracks the performance of the WisdomTree U.S. MidCap Dividend Index, a collection of dividend-paying mid-cap stocks.
The index takes the largest 300 companies out of the WisdomTree U.S. Dividend Index. It then selects the top 75% of dividend-paying stocks by market cap. Relative to the S&P 500, DON did quite well in 2022, generating a total return of -4.74%.
If you’re looking for mid-cap dividend stocks to buy, DON is an excellent place to find good ideas for January and the rest of 2023. The ETF currently has 351 stocks invested in its $3.2 billion in total assets.
Here are three that make excellent investments. They all have market caps between $2 billion and $15 billion.
