VGT Factset Analytics Insight

VGT is one of the most diverse market-cap-weighted technology ETFs available, yet it still reflects the concentrated nature of the space. It represents the market well, including more small- and micro-caps than most of the other broad tech sector funds while still managing to keep all-in costs extremely low. Definitions of “tech” differ from fund to fund: VGT includes credit card firms but excludes telecoms. Gaming and internet services companies were moved to sibling VOX following a GICS revision in 2018. (Note that Fidelity’s FTEC tracks a nearly identical index). VGT reliably delivers the returns of its underlying index. For investors who want broad, plain-vanilla exposure to the US technology market at low cost, VGT gets it done. From May 3 to December 3, 2018, VGT tracked a transitional version of index that incrementally removed exposure to reclassified companies.
