VTWG Fund Description

VTWG tracks an index of US small-cap growth stocks. Holdings are selected and weighted based on EPS growth estimates and historical sales growth.

VTWG Factset Analytics Insight

VTWG tracks a traditional style index that divides the Russell 2000 Index into growth and value subsets using just two growth factors: IBES 2-year growth forecasts and 5-year historical sales-per-share growth. The index selects from stocks ranked 1001-3000 by market-cap based on these growth factors, and weights holdings in a similar fashion. VTWG avoids a midcap bias but reaches into micro-cap stocks, which increases market risk. Sector biases are mild except for an overweight to healthcare and tech. Overall, VTWG is still a viable choice for small-cap growth exposure. The index is reconstituted on an annual basis.
