Which Vanguard ETF? (VUG, VOO. VTI)

Which Vanguard ETF? (VUG, VOO. VTI)

MadChild2033

i don't think you can go wrong with any of those, i prefer VTI tho


Saucepasses

Why do you prefer VTI?


saxtoncan

I’m not the one who commented this but…I prefer VTI because it is more diversified and doesn’t have such a high percentage of it in tech stocks. I believe in tech stocks but I feel I have to be prepared just in case tech falls somehow.


hellomoto_x

Don't overthink it, just go something like 80% VTI and 20% VXUS


Saucepasses

You didn't read the post, did you?

You didn't read this subreddit, did you?


Saucepasses

Im talking about the specific part about US vs international stocks.


WonderedFidelity

To be honest you’re only really going to get repeated advice here (not saying that’s the worst thing). Best thing is to do your own research and come to the conclusions you’re most comfortable with.


kineloni

VXUS always seems to be red since I invested a year ago..


West-Requirement4107

I actually went 60/40. It’s served me well. VTI feels less risky, as VUG is more aggressive tech weighted. The reason I hold them both is because they are not redundant. They both cover different things.


Laakhesis

VTI, it has everything. Mega-cap, Large-cap, Mid-cap, Small-cap, Growth, and Value.. Stick with this and you’ll better do than most retail investors.

VTI or VT. Set it and forget it. Or RSP (equal-weight S&P).

I have funds in VUG, VOO and VIOG. No reason to have funds in VTI as those funds are already part of one of the other funds. Over the course of the last year my VUG funds have gone from 213 to 297. VOO 297 to 403 and VIOG from 152 to 224. Just incredible growth for some pretty conservative funds. Since you're still quite young, I would diversity and take a look at these 3 funds I mentioned. Two are pretty safe while still providing a decent return. One is a tech fund with a little more volatility but still a pretty safe bet. I just dollar cost average and buy more every two weeks. I only check the balance about every three months as these aren't really the type of funds you have to worry about. There are some ebbs and flows but I just keep adding funds and they haven't let me down at all. Like you said, Vanguard is very low cost on fees. Sure there are riskier investments where you might cash in but for a long-term, pretty safe investment, I wholeheartedly recommend these funds.


WhiteHoney88

And VTi went from $112 to $226.69. Point is everything is up over the last year/year and a half.


thermann9

As stated, the same funds that make up VTI are part of one of the other Vanguard Funds. To invest in both would be redundant.


iggy555

Qqq and vti


tab_111

My take is VOO and QQQ. 50% each. Set and forget for 15 to 20 yr


iggy555

Yes sir


SingleVitamin

Is it stupid to have both qqq and qqqj?


iggy555

No they are different etfs


ijpck

This is what I do


nerdcole

I have rebalanced to VTI because of the low expense ratio


Jesusness2021

Hi nerdcole, I'm new to this Investment. What do you mean by rebalanced to VTI? I heard rebalance, but I do not have any idea. Can you give me an example? thanks


nerdcole

Meaning, I had VOO, VOOV and VT...I have since been selling those at losses as a tax strategy and buying VTI since it has the lowest expense ratio.

XLK QQQ VOO VTI SCHB MTUM


Character-Welder-670

You can’t go wrong with VTI set and forget keep adding money you’ll be fine go aggressive your young….


psuKinger

I like VUG (and VBK) for my (30-year-investment-window) retirement account, because I believe Growth will be more volatile (higher risk) than value but for the long haul yield higher reward... I like VTI for my "short-term" (~3 year) investing needs because I think the broader diversification will help smooth things out a bit and make it a little less volatile when I decide I want to access those funds... I'll probably move my VUG and VBK into VTI or VOO as I approach retirement (20+ years from now) for the same reason...


hlyyyy

Love vug look at schg


kingkyle630

VGT is a power house right now


Available-Iron-7419

33%vug 33% voo 34% vti take all three. My 401k is 50% vug 50% voo dont have vti


Saucepasses

Thx for the input


Lakersrock111

VTI


Saucepasses

Why? Edit: this keeps getting downvoted. Im asking for an argument as to why over my current setup.


Wu-Kang

I have no idea what I'm doing, but I went VTI, VUG and VYM. I figure VUG and VYM would give me tilt toward the top 400 growth and 400 value companies. It's like an 80/10/10 split.


EmperorOfWallStreet

VOO 40%, VXF 10%, VGK 20%, VPL 15% & VWO 15%.


savinger

You've changed.


Distinct-Average-949

I do like VUG, is my tilt to growth, I only have dividend growth investments, VUG covers the high fly stocks I missed. Barely overlap with others.


sheadite1

I did the Ginger Ale portfolio so used VOO


Big_Election5023

Is there a asx eft similar to vti


ruminir

Why not TQQQ?


Saucepasses

Because I missed the big ride up and the volatility decay will kill the position.


ITCHYisVegeta

I do a mix of VTI and VOO, because I favor the VOO stocks more.


DinoDaddy_arrived

VEQT/XEQT


hthmoney

Qqqm and VTI. Track both indexes and take the market returns.


crywhenugetolder

VTI or VTSAX, you can’t go wrong.


the_coffee_maker

I believe you’ve answered your own question


Saucepasses

Not really, I have my way of thinking and am hoping someone can present actual evidence as to why it is false.


the_coffee_maker

Why do you think the way you think is not the right way to think?


Saucepasses

Tradition.


RSAbru

VTI and sleep well. Perhaps add a little VUG if you must 20%


Dadd_io

VGT has higher returns and a lower PE than VUG. I don't like VUG because it has Tesla, which is a hugely overpriced meme stock.


sogladatwork

I'm not a fan of vanguard. I don't think they're a good steward of your shares. I'd go with blackrock, personally, or a fund with a better voting record than vanguard, at least. edit: How dare I have an opinion, right?
