Any other investors in IUKD here? Or is everyone into AIM oil drillers and US tech? :slight_smile:

I like my oil stocks. My largest investment is Gulf Keystone Petroleum although they aren’t AIM. EME is one to watch.

I have some IUKD, Probably 70% of my portfolio is dividend focused. Mostly individual socks but I have a few ETFs as well

I’m in UKDV.

That was the better choice. I’m about 30% down on IUKD since I invested. I’m not sure when I should try and get rid of it.

The Investors Chronicle dropped it from it’s top 50 ETF collection. Reason:

UKDV is still on the list, because it invests in not high-yielding, but dividend-growing stocks:

There is a lot of difference between the two ETFs, and I should have researched more. Disappointed!
