XLC Fund Description

XLC tracks a market-cap-weighted index of US telecommunication and media & entertainment components of the S&P 500 index.

XLC Factset Analytics Insight

XLC offers exposure to the Communication Services sector that was defined by the September 2018 changes to the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS). The fund includes all members of the former telecom sector (expanded to include internet service providers), as well as media & entertainment companies previously classified in the consumer discretionary or tech sectors. This latter industry group includes many heavyweights such as Facebook, Alphabet, Netflix, and Disney. XLC is one of the eleven Select Sector SPDR funds, which draw their holdings from the S&P 500 index. Typically, trading volume in these products is high. The expense ratio places the fund in the middle of the competition.
