Summary

| |

Vanguard Dividend Appreciation focuses on quality franchises that have reliably increased the amount of cash they give back to shareholders over time. Its stringent selection criteria yield a portfolio that balances income, capital appreciation, and risk. Its low fee gives it a durable edge versus its large-blend Morningstar Category peers and a low hurdle to clear toward beating its category index. Under our enhanced rating methodology, which places greater emphasis on fees, both U.S. share classes of the fund earned a Morningstar Analyst Rating upgrade to Gold from Silver, while the Canadian share class is rated Silver.
