ETF.com Insight

With dozens of ETFs and over $400 billion in combined AUM, the US Large Cap segment includes such blockbusters as SPY and QQQ as well as lesser-known funds. It's easily the mostLarge cap ETFs hold as few as 50 to as many as 1000 stocks. popular segment, with the most funds, making ETF selection that much harder.
At the highest level, the segment can be split between plain-vanilla ETFs, which try to represent the neutral market, and ETFs that attempt to improve on the market in some way.
ETFs further differentiate themselves through their definition of "large cap": At the extremes, XLG only includes the top 50 companies by market cap, while IWB, VONE and ONEK go as far as the top 1,000. The difference can be significant: We define large-caps as the top 70% of the US equity market by market cap, which equates to approximately 300 companies, so the broader ETFs extend well beyond their large-cap mandates in our view. More importantly, investors should watch for overlaps or gaps in coverage when combining large-cap ETFs with the rest of their exposure.
The fees in this segment range from SCHX's 0.04% to FWDD's 1.25%, with all plain-vanilla funds coming in at 0.20% or less. Tradability scores run the gamut as well, and frequent traders will likely prefer SPY or QQQ for their massive liquidity.
Non-vanilla funds, like wildly-popular SPLV, score low in Fit, which merely indicates that they don't look or act like cap-weighted funds. Investors considering these alternative approaches should spend time in the Fit section to grasp the impact on the fund's portfolio. MGC earns our Analyst Pick for the segment as it charges the lowest fees and its exposure aligns perfectly with our benchmark. Meanwhile, SPLV's low volatility approach earns it a spot on our Opportunities list. Those two funds aside, given the breadth of choices here, letter grades may be a good first screen to sift the wheat from the chaff. (Insight updated 07/21/17)

ETF.com Efficiency Insight

Most of the US large-cap ETFs are incredibly efficient—31 score at least 90 on our scale. That's driven in part by the fact that many—although not all—ETFs in thisno less than 16 funds are at high risk of getting shut down segment charge ultra-low fees. SCHX leads the pack with its 0.04% expense ratio and VOO runs a close second with its 0.05% fee, while juggernauts IVV and SPY come in at 0.07% and 0.09%, respectively. All the plain-vanilla funds here charge 0.20% or less.
In contrast, many ETFs tracking alternative indexes charge more, which creates a direct drag on their ability to track their indexes and hurts their Efficiency scores. They also, generally, have higher turnover, which increases transaction costs and makes tracking more difficult. Higher costs and looser tracking tend to push non-vanilla funds toward the bottom end of the Efficiency score spectrum. Still, funds that take alternative views on the market, like SPLV and PRF, can score well here.
A fund's closure risk also factors into its Efficiency score: no less than 16 funds are at high risk of getting shut down by their issuers and 3 funds carry medium risk. In contrast, certain other funds have amassed massive asset bases, most notably SPY, IVV and QQQ.
Most of the ETFs in this segment have been well managed from a taxation perspective, avoiding capital gains distributions in recent memory, and most have built up significant capital losses to avoid payouts in the future. (Insight updated 07/21/17)

ETF.com Tradability Insight

Traders looking for massive on-screen liquidity need look no further than SPY—with over $15 billion changing hands on a typical day, it's the easiest ETF to trade at aDon't assume that all of the ETFs in this segment are easy to trade moment's notice and one of the most liquid securities in the world. QQQ also knocks the competition out of the water with over $2.5 billion in daily volume. Trailing these two behemoths are DIA with just under $1 billion, IVV with about $750 million and VOO with about $300 million. In general, there are a lot of very liquid choices in this segment, as evidenced by the 29 ETFs with Tradability scores of 95 or better. These most liquid choices all have minimal bid/ask spreads and tend to trade very close to fair value.
However, it would be a mistake to assume that all of the ETFs in this segment are easy to trade. Near the bottom are funds like BWV and SYE with a median volume of $0, indicating that they don't trade at all most days. Spreads can be exorbitant, too. EEH sees average quoted spreads in excess of 10% for example. Use limit orders and be careful.
One of the major advantages of US large-cap equity ETFs is that their holdings tend to be very liquid, making it easy and relatively cheap to execute large trades using a market maker, regardless of the ETF's on-screen liquidity. More than 3/4 of the ETFs in this segment have perfect block liquidity scores, so those trading in size have plenty to choose from. No matter how little it trades on the secondary market, for many funds, chances are you can move 50,000, or even 500,000 shares very easily. (Insight updated 07/21/17)

ETF.com Fit Insight

From 30,000 feet, investors have two types of large-cap funds to choose from: plain-vanilla, market-cap-weighted ETFs that fit our benchmark reasonably well; and alternatively weighted ETFsSome quasi-active funds aim to beat the market without wildly differing from it that offer a different take on the market. Some funds in the 2nd group still look and perform much like cap-weight funds while others take bold departures.
The plain vanilla funds include those that track the S&P 500—SPY, IVV and VOO. We classify the selection for these funds as Proprietary rather than Market-Cap due to the S&P 500's committee-based selection. Still, these funds score well here despite a modest, out-of-segment stake in midcaps.
MGC, VV, IWL, and SCHX also represent the market extremely well. MGC's index switch from MSCI to CRSP in early 2013 has not diminished the fund's score—it still tracks about 300 of the largest US firms. Mega-cap fund IWL narrows the list to just the largest 200 companies by market cap. Strong Fit scores for these funds reflect how the largest firms dominate both the exposure and performance of the market, as measured by our market-cap weighted benchmark.
OEF's top-100 and XLG's top-50 baskets take the mega-focus to the extreme, and their Fit scores suffer a bit for it, while funds like IWB, ONEK and VONE reach in the other direction into the midcap space. Investors in these funds should watch for overlap with mid-cap funds in their portfolio.
Two of the most popular non-vanilla ETFs include the price-weighted DIA which tracks the venerable Dow and delivers middling exposure at best, and QQQ which tracks the Nasdaq-100 and tilts massively toward technology stocks. Low-volatility SPLV—which makes our opportunities list—has gathered headlines and assets as it tries to offer a smoother ride while maintaining equity upside. Its counterpart—SPHB—aims to capitalize on market upswings with its focus on high-beta stocks.
Equal-weighted RSP offers more exposure to smaller firms even though it holds the same 500 names as SPY, while EQL equal-weights the S&P 500 by sector. DLN's dividend focus offers more income and adds a de facto value bias to its portfolio, while DTN does the same but removes the impact of the relatively volatile financial sector. SDOG explicitly looks at dividends as a means for finding value—it holds the 5 highest yielding S&P 500 stocks in each sector.
Another fund on the Opportunities List—PRF—aims for perfect exposure to US firms as measured by their economic footprint rather than market-cap. As such it doesn't aim to beat the market so much as redefine it. Some quasi-active funds like FEX explicitly aim to beat the market without wildly differing from it, with varying long-run results in both respects. More exotic competitors live in the large-cap segment too. These include funds that can switch to cash in tough times (TRND), covered call strategies (PBP), tail-risk hedged (TRSK), forensic accounting (FLAG) and many more.
MGC earns our Analyst Pick for its pure, comprehensive coverage of the US large-cap universe, but there are large-cap ETFs for almost every imaginable tilt or bias, each with the potential to out- or underperform the market given different circumstances. (Insight updated 07/21/17)
