VOXVanguard Communication Services ETF
VOX Fund Description
The Vanguard Communication Services ETF tracks a highly concentrated, market-cap-weighted index of US communication services companies.
VOX Factset Analytics Insight
VOX offers exposure to companies that provide communication services primarily through fixed-line, cellular, wireless, high-bandwidth, fiber-optic cable networks, and those that offer related content and information through various media. Its Fit score suffers because diversification requirements don't let VOX offer a truly market-like picture of the hyper-concentrated US telecom industry. Even so, almost half its assets in its top two holdings, telecom giants AT&T and Verizon, so some investors may want to go elsewhere if they're looking for broader diversification, or just invest in the stocks outright to if they're looking for more direct exposure to the segment. VOX trades well in all but the largest quantities: onscreen liquidity is strong and spreads narrow, but its micro-cap exposure can cause creations and redemptions to move underlying prices. VOX does boast one of the segment's lowest expense ratios and tracks its index well, though like all Vanguard ETFs it only discloses monthly.
VOXs index is designed to transition the funds exposure to the newly defined Communication Services sector under GICS. The transition is expected to be completed by September 2018. Prior to May 3, 2018 the fund was called Vanguard Telecommunication Services ETF and tracked the MSCI US Investable Market Telecommunication Services 25/50 Index.
