MGC Factset Analytics Insight
MGC is passively managed to provide broad exposure to the largest companies in the US. by market capitalization. Companies are selected by using shares outstanding (both total and free-float) and capitalization-based breakpoints to determine those that are considered mega-cap from the broader CRSP US Total Market Index. The resulting portfolio looks basically identical to its benchmark — a very representative take on the mega-cap space. The underlying index encompasses equity securities including common stocks and real estate investment trusts (REITs) that are listed on a CRSP exchange of interest — NYSE, NYSE American, NYSE ARCA, NASDAQ, Cboe Global Markets, and the IEX. Holdings are market-cap weighted with quarterly review. As with all Vanguard ETFs, transparency is a slight concern — holdings are only disclosed monthly, with a lag.
