Summary

| |

Vanguard Dividend Appreciation offers a diversified portfolio of highly profitable U.S. dividend-paying stocks. Its focus on dividend growth gives it a quality bent, which should help it weather downturns better than its large-blend Morningstar Category peers. In combination with its cost advantage relative to its category competition, this defensive tilt should help it outperform the Russell 1000 Index over the long term. However, it applies a stringent dividend growth screen, which may preclude it from owning high-quality emerging dividend stocks. We are downgrading the fund's Morningstar Analyst Rating to Silver from Gold, as we think the fund’s process is solid--just not best in class.
