VCR Fund Description

The Vanguard Consumer Discretionary ETF tracks a market-cap-weighted index of stocks in the US Consumer Discretionary sector.

VCR Factset Analytics Insight

VCR delivers plain-vanilla exposure to the consumer discretionary space in a low-cost and liquid wrapper. VCR's distinguishing factor is its breadth, holding a huge basket of stocks that it selects and weights by market cap. In addition to the sectors tracked by our benchmark, VCR has holdings in Software and IT and in Personal and Household Products and Services. VCR trades well, though investors who need maximum liquidity can probably find even better options in the segment. It's a well-run fund that delivers its index extremely well, and its expense ratio is cheap for this segment. VCR's one drawback is transparency: like all Vanguard ETFs, VCR only discloses its holdings on a monthly basis, instead of daily.VCR’s index is designed to transition the fund’s exposure to the newly defined Consumer Discretionary sector under GICS. The transition is expected to be completed by September 2018. Prior to May 3, 2018, the fund tracked the MSCI US Investable Market Consumer Discretionary 25/50 Index.
