VUG FactSet Analytics Insight

VUG provides broad exposure to USBe careful that VUG doesn't overlap with midcaps in your portfolio large-cap-growth firms. The fund has been popular with investors, and boasts a large, stable asset base with strong liquidity. Its expense ratio—among the segment's lowest—makes it a prime choice for long-term investors. The fund does lose a few points for transparency: as with all its funds, Vanguard discloses holdings monthly, rather than daily.
VUG's CRSP index (which it switched to in 2013) selects stocks based on six growth factors: expected long-term growth in earnings per share (EPS), expected short-term growth in EPS, 3-year historical growth in EPS, 3-year historical growth in sales per share, current investment-to-assets ratio, and return on assets. The fund holds many of the same names as our benchmark in its top holdings, yet is less concentrated because it dips into the midcap space. Be careful that the fund doesn't overlap with other midcaps in your portfolio. Overall, VUG is an excellent choice for investors seeking inexpensive, diversified exposure to the space.
