VAW Fund Description

The Vanguard Materials ETF tracks a very broad market-cap-weighted index of US materials companies.

VAW Factset Analytics Insight

VAW offers extremely broad exposure to the US basic materials segment thanks to a highly representative market-cap-weighted index. While it has a noteworthy large-cap tilt, there's considerable overlap between VAW's holdings and our segment benchmark, and the only meaningful bet it makes is the addition of fishing, farming, and industrial conglomerate firms to the portfolio. In all, it's a fantastic take on the sector. It's also easy to trade, with deep liquidity in both the primary and secondary markets. With one of the lowest expense ratios in its segment and near-perfect tracking, VAW earns our Analyst Pick ribbon.
