Bryan Armour



Vanguard High Dividend Yield strikes a balance between higher yield and the inherent risks. Weighting stocks by market cap steers the fund toward more stable, large-cap stocks and away from those whose dividends may be distressed. Its consistently strong risk/reward profile underpins its Process Pillar rating upgrade to High from Above Average.
