VCR Fund Description

VCR 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. The fund’s Fit score is less than perfect only because it excludes media and entertainment companies that were reclassified to the communication services sector under GICS in 2018; our chosen segment benchmark retains them. This is merely a definitional difference, however, and the missing names can be found in sibling fund VOX.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. VCR's one drawback is transparency: like all Vanguard ETFs, VCR only discloses its holdings on a monthly basis, instead of daily.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.
