The two different investment strategies are something investors often look to achieve with a portfolio and the new ETF will look to provide both within a single vehicle. The ETF achieves this by investing in about 100 U.S. securities that have historically had high dividend yields. At the same time, the ETF will short approximately 200 stocks that have little to no dividend yield. This strategy is aimed at reducing risk and volatility that is typical of many long-only equity strategies. The maximum weight for any sector in the long portion of the portfolio is 25 percent and 15 percent for specific industries.

There remains an outside shot that the two parties could agree on some form of corporate tax reform in 2015.

Obama aide: Our ‘strong logic’ for rich tax hikes

The Washington Post/ABC poll out Monday showed 56% of Americans felt the country was on the wrong track – an improvement from the 70% who felt that way in 2013, but still reflective of a majority who aren’t seeing much to crow about in the economic recovery. That gloom is part of the reason Democrats fared so poorly in November’s midterm elections – and why Obama’s address on Tuesday will be delivered to the first GOP-majority Congress of Obama’s presidency. The White House hopes that with improving approval poll numbers will come more unity among Democrats around Obama’s agenda, which aides say can be reduced to three words: middle class economics. Obama tax plan: Cuts and hikes “It’s important for us to find every single way that we can to provide some relief for middle class families because as the economy finally after six years gets to the point where people are beginning to feel it, we need to make sure we lean in so that folks have a little bit more money at the end of the week,” said David Simas, the director of Obama’s political office. That means proposing new tax breaks for married couples where each partner works, increasing the child care tax credit and offering two years of community college free to qualified applicants.
