VOTVanguard Mid-Cap Growth ETF
VOT Fund Description
VOT tracks a market-cap-weighted index of midcap growth companies selected by the Center for Research in Security Prices (CRSP).
VOT Factset Analytics Insight
VOT goes for growth exposure within the US midcap space. The fund changed its midcap growth index in April 2013 from FTSE to CRSP. Its current index chooses growth companies based on their historical earnings and sales growth rates, current internal growth rates, and forecasted earnings growth rates. Securities are scored and ranked based on the composite of these growth factors, which also become the basis of their weighting. The resulting portfolio is a very representative take on the midcap-growth space, although investors should monitor for some tilt toward slightly larger, higher-growth companies at times. The index is fully reviewed on a quarterly basis. As with all Vanguard ETFs, transparency is a slight concern — holdings are only disclosed monthly, with a 2-week lag.
