Analyst Report

VGT tracks a broad index of companies in the information technology sector which the company considers to be the following three areas; software, consulting, and hardware. As a result, this fund tracks some of the most crucial companies in the technology sector across a wide range of market cap levels. The fund focuses entirely on U.S. stocks, and is relatively top heavy; three securities make up 25% of the fund 54% of assets go to the top ten even though the fund holds over 425 securities in total. Investors should also note that this fund dedicates the majority of its assets to giant and large cap funds, meaning that it will be less volatile than some of the other products in the space that focus on relatively unproven companies and technologies. As a result, this fund will be more of a value play than one that presents strong growth opportunities. So while this is a decent fund for those looking to achieve broad exposure to the tech sector without the influence of semiconductors, most investors should look to broader fund which take into account all sectors of the technology industry instead for their portfolios.
