Sep 28, 2020 (Baystreet.ca via COMTEX) -- A great option for investors looking for a broad mix is the Vanguard Total Stock Market Index ETF Shares (nysearca:VTI). As its name suggests, this ETF aims to give you exposure to the total market.
With more than 3,500 stocks in the fund, there’s not a whole lot of risk you’ll have to an individual stock. The top two stocks in the fund are Apple Inc /zigman2/quotes/202934861/composite AAPL +1.32% and Microsoft /zigman2/quotes/207732364/composite MSFT +0.20% . Those two tech giants account for just under 11% of the entire portfolio weight. Its top 10 holdings only make up 25.2% of its total assets.
Year to date, the ETF’s risen 2% in value, a bit better than the Dow Jones, which has fallen by 5%. However, it’s underperformed the NASDAQ, which is up over 21% thus far in 2020.
