The Best Investments for the Next Decade: Vanguard Mid-Cap ETF (VO)
The Vanguard Mid-Cap ETF (NYSEARCA:VO) covers mid-cap stocks while avoiding dipping down into the small-cap arena, and it does so for just 0.06% — lower than 95% of its peers.
In other words, most of your money is going to the actual investments themselves and not the fund company.
With VO, you get 348 stocks invested across $86.1 billion in total net assets with a median market cap of $13.1 billion. These are decent-sized companies, many of which are still in the growth mode. This includes the likes of Equinix, Inc. (NASDAQ:EQIX) and Fiserv Inc (NASDAQ:FISV).
As I said before, I like this ETF because only 1% of the portfolio is invested in small-cap stocks; 64% goes to mid-caps and the remaining 35% to large caps.
