Morningstar’s Analysis

Will VSMAX outperform in future?

Get our overall rating based on a fundamental assessment of the pillars below.

A well-constructed small-cap fund with a sizable cost advantage.

Summary

| |

Vanguard Small-Cap Index has some great features. Its well-diversified portfolio and rock-bottom expense ratio should provide a sustainable edge over its Morningstar Category peers. But small-cap stocks are less liquid than large caps, so forced trades can impart additional costs to index-tracking strategies. Although the fund takes prudent steps to mitigate these costs, its lowest-cost share classes warrant a Morningstar Analyst Rating downgrade to Silver from Gold.
