Healthy, thriving businesses often have something in common: lots of cash flow.

Many investors love companies that return this cash flow to shareholders through dividend payments. But dividends aren't the only way management can use its cash to create value for shareholders.

Smart managers can often buy back stock or pay off debt. These two options, along with dividends, create the trio known as shareholder yield.

So how does the Cambria Shareholder Yield ETF (SYLD) work?

  • SYLD selects the top 100 companies each calendar quarter based on dividends and buybacks.

  • The fund will also screen for value and quality factors, including low financial leverage, in order to avoid value traps.

  • SYLD will then equally weight each one of the selected companies in the portfolio to maximize diversification.

Explore a different approach to yield investing with the Cambria Shareholder Yield ETF, SYLD.
