VHT Fund Description

VHT tracks the MSCI U.S. Investable Market Health Care 25/50 Index, which includes health care stocks pulled from the top 98% of the total US stock market capitalization.

VHT Factset Analytics Insight

VHT offers broad exposure in a large and liquid wrapper. It's a cap-weighted fund that holds over 300 US health care firms, stretching across multiple industries from the broadly defined health care space. The fund’s large basket stems from its total market universe. VHT is cheap to hold with a low fee and excellent tracking. It has healthy liquidity too, although competitor XLV sees greater volume and tighter spreads. Like all Vanguard funds, VHT has limited transparency, as holdings are only published monthly with a roughly two week delay. However, for the long- term investor looking for broad coverage, a lack of transparency shouldn’t be a deal breaker. VHT wins Analyst Pick for broad, cheap coverage of the US healthcare space. Note: competitor FHLC tracks a very similar MSCI index.
