VDC Fund Description

VDC tracks a market-cap-weighted index of stocks in the Consumer Staples sector of the US market.

VDC Factset Analytics Insight

VDC delivers pure-play consumer staples exposure as well as any other fund in the segment, with a broad and representative basket of consumer staples stocks and low all-in costs. Sector biases are minimal save for a definitional difference: Walmart looms large here while some competing funds—and our benchmark—don't hold the giant retailer. It's holdings are undeniably concentrated among its top 10, but that reflects its sector, which is dominated by big firms even more than VDC's basket shows. VDC trades easily, and its low expense ratio and solid tracking make it an Analyst Pick despite the fact that it doesn't display its daily holdings.
