VNQ Fund Description

The Vanguard U.S. REIT fund tracks a market-cap-weighted index of companies involved in the ownership and operation of real estate in the United States.

VNQ Factset Analytics Insight

VNQ dominates US real estate ETFs. It tracks a broad index that captures much of the US real estate market. The fund holds a deep basket and its market-cap allocations mirror those of our neutral benchmark. The only place it deviates is the persistent sector bias away from specialized REITs in favor of commercial REITs.
VNQ has massive assets and is extremely cheap to hold. In fact, excellent portfolio management has, at times, brought the cost of owning VNQ even lower than its paltry stated expense ratio. The only blemish we see is the fact that Vanguard discloses holdings monthly rather than daily. However, this is a nuisance at most in a low-turnover fund, and immaterial to many investors. VNQ trades huge volumes every day with penny-wide spreads. It has the depth and liquidity to handle almost anything. As with peer REIT ETFs, distributions from the fund are taxed as ordinary income.
In all, VNQ earns Analyst Pick in a crowded field for solid coverage at extremely low all-in costs.
