Vanguard’s Energy fund is a standout in the group, boasting a 21.5% return and a total return of 19.9% over the last year.
The fund has also done well in the recent downturn, and the index fund has grown more than 20% in the last month alone.
The S&P 500 is a far cry from the S&p 500, which has fallen nearly 40% since the beginning of the year.
Vanguard’s search fund, however, is another favorite, with a 10.7% return over the past year and a 12.6% return in the past month.
Investors should be wary of the S/bk funds, however.
While the fund has an 11.2% return, it has seen its overall return decline from 17.5%, to 10.5%.
The Vanguard-sponsored S&m Fund is another strong pick, with an 11% return.
It has risen to a high of 12.3% this year, but is currently down to 11.4% on a year-over-year basis.
The SPG Fund is a strong contender in the long-term space, with returns of 14.5%; however, the fund is down over 13% since its inception.
While some stocks are making an appearance in the S-and-P-500, there are still plenty of other funds to choose from.
The top 10 most valuable index funds have a combined value of over $8.5 trillion, according to FactSet.
That’s almost double the amount invested in the entire S&am Group.
The Vanguard and S&s S&op Funds, the Vanguard/SPG fund and the SPG/Vanguard fund all boast strong returns, which is why you should pick these funds up if you want to grow your portfolio.
