Hi Moooohead,

The best place for info on Vanguard's ETF's is the Vanguard site. Here is VOO for example:

https://investor.vanguard.com/etf/profile/overview/voo

You can see the fees, .03%, the last couple years of distributions, the portfolio info, price performance and a basic overview of the fund makeup.

Just type the symbol on the end of the line, replacing VOO, to look at another fund.


For my money, I do not have a "need" for an ETF. The only one we own is BIV, an intermediate bond fund at 0.61% of our portfolio.

I will not own a mutual fund anymore. I had to own some when I had a 401K and they were terrible performers and high fee. Even when I was paying a $45 broker fee in the late 1980's, it was a 1.5% fee on a $3,000 block of stock. As long as I held the stock, no more fees. With mutual funds it is every year.


Does that help you?
