VB Fund Description

The Vanguard Small-Cap ETF tracks the CRSP US Small Cap Index. The market-cap-weighted index includes the bottom 2-15% of the investable universe.

VB Factset Analytics Insight

VB is one of the giants in the small-cap space, and for good reasons: a low expense ratio, tight tracking, deep liquidity and a broad index that captures the US small-cap space well. VB earns high marks in Fit, in part a reflection of the fund's highly diverse portfolio. Note however that both the fund and our benchmark are skewed toward midcaps, so it could overlap with existing midcaps in your portfolio. (The fund switched to CRSP index in 2013.) VB is stable, with over a decade of trading history. The only negative mark here is one common to all Vanguard funds: holdings are reported monthly, not daily. VB earns Analyst Pick for dirt-cheap all-in costs and broad, balanced exposure to US small-caps.
