Which Vanguard ETF? (VUG, VOO. VTI)
By - Saucepasses
i don't think you can go wrong with any of those, i prefer VTI tho
Why do you prefer VTI?
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.
Don't overthink it, just go something like 80% VTI and 20% VXUS
You didn't read the post, did you?
You didn't read this subreddit, did you?
Im talking about the specific part about US vs international stocks.
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.
VXUS always seems to be red since I invested a year ago..
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.
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.
And VTi went from $112 to $226.69. Point is everything is up over the last year/year and a half.
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.
Qqq and vti
My take is VOO and QQQ. 50% each. Set and forget for 15 to 20 yr
Is it stupid to have both qqq and qqqj?
No they are different etfs
This is what I do
I have rebalanced to VTI because of the low expense ratio
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
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.
You can’t go wrong with VTI set and forget keep adding money you’ll be fine go aggressive your young….
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...
Love vug look at schg
VGT is a power house right now
33%vug 33% voo 34% vti take all three. My 401k is 50% vug 50% voo dont have vti
Thx for the input
Edit: this keeps getting downvoted. Im asking for an argument as to why over my current setup.
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.
VOO 40%, VXF 10%, VGK 20%, VPL 15% & VWO 15%.
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.
I did the Ginger Ale portfolio so used VOO
Is there a asx eft similar to vti
Why not TQQQ?
Because I missed the big ride up and the volatility decay will kill the position.
I do a mix of VTI and VOO, because I favor the VOO stocks more.
Qqqm and VTI. Track both indexes and take the market returns.
VTI or VTSAX, you can’t go wrong.
I believe you’ve answered your own question
Not really, I have my way of thinking and am hoping someone can present actual evidence as to why it is false.
Why do you think the way you think is not the right way to think?
VTI and sleep well. Perhaps add a little VUG if you must 20%
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.
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?
