Vanguard Dividend Appreciation Index has several merits that lead to a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Gold. The fund is backed by Vanguard's massive indexing operation, which is topnotch in the industry. Like most Vanguard funds, it benefits from low fees. The fund is priced competitively relative to other strategic-beta offerings, which are typically a little pricier than standard index funds. Investors pay 19 basis points with a $3,000 minimum investment, 9 basis points for the Admiral shares with a $10,000 investment, or 10 basis points for the exchange-traded fund.
