How can just appreciate how clever the VOO ticker symbol is?

Related, I always thought it was weird that VTI is the etf without international exposure while VT is.
I hate that VTI + VXUS is the complete opposite of International + US.
VTI might be Vanguard Total Index
VXUS might be Vanguard excluding US.
For sure! And it bothers me. To begin with, why is "Vanguard Total Stock Market" (VTI) not the total stock market??
The name "VXUS" says to me "don't think of a pink elephant", because of course I will associate the name with the US.
vXus....EX-US, NOT U.S.!!!!! har har
Agreed with you totally
You know I never realized that until just now
It get's better!
* IVOO = S&P 400 (mid cap index... IV = 4)
* VIOO = S&P 600 (small cap index... VI = 6)
* VONE = Russell 1000
* VTWO = Russell 2000
Vanguard has some pretty good names!
Albeit... SPY for S&P 500 I think is still the best ticker (though I just buy VOO).
How can you not buy voo
Why not both?
Just kidding. But before i was in this sub I actually had hella overlap because I owned both
I have both, and plan on keeping it that way for awhile.
I wouldn’t do that, if a major crash happens you can hop from one to the other to harvest tax-loss. They are pretty closely tied so one over the other doesn’t really matter
>* VONE = Russell 1000
>* VTWO = Russell 2000
I think we need to establish that V can also mean "Vanguard" so we don't succumb to bad maths here.
Equally clever are the names of Fidelity's zero-expense funds (the middle three letters; the funds all start with F and end with X):
They're awesome. 🍺
lol that's great
Why is VO the mid cap index?
IVOO is the mid cap index... aka the S&P 400
Same with IOO the ishares global 100.
Pretty sure Vanguard was inspired by IOO for VOO.
IOO launched like 10 years before VOO.
I've always like Global X's thematic ETF names.
PAVE (infrastructure), BUG (Cyber security), and DRIV (EV's) to name a few
I love how certain ETFs get named like MJ for marijuana, UFO for space companies or NERD etf for video game sector.
Wow. Never noticed til now. VGT and VTI’s tickers confused me sometimes. Don’t know why.
I was today years old when I learned this. Smh
I dont want to be THAT guy but actually „D“ would stand for 500.
Why you gotta be the 100 Luftballon?
I had no idea! Also, I’m just going through these comments and adding to my “DD later” list. Great post!
Next thing you’re gonna tell me is SPY is called SPY ticker cuz it represents the s&p500 index........ ok wise guy. If you’re so smart what is the QQQ mean in invesco QQQ?
ok smartass then explain what the Y stands for?!
