VCR Factset Analytics Insight
VCR delivers plain-vanilla exposure to the consumer discretionary sector, as defined by GICS. The fund has breadth, holding a huge basket of stocks that it selects and weights by market cap. The fund excludes media and entertainment companies that were reclassified to the communication services sector under GICS in 2018. The fund diversifies its holdings by applying limits on regulated investment companies using the MSCI 25/50 methodology. Like all Vanguard ETFs, VCR only discloses its holdings monthly, instead of daily. The index is rebalanced quarterly. Between May 3 and December 3, 2018, the fund tracked a transitional version of its index that incrementally reduced exposure to reclassified media and entertainment companies.
