MOAT
VanEck Vectors Morningstar Wide Moat ETF

Latest Market Updates*

  • MOAT’s index underwent its quarterly review on September 18, 2020 when it reinforced its previous shifts away from mega cap growth-oriented companies to a more value-oriented posturing. This positioning in what Morningstar believes are undervalued stocks has driven near-term underperformance relative to the broad US equity markets.
  • FAANG + Microsoft accounted for over 23% of the S&P 500 Index while only Amazon and Microsoft remain in MOAT which accounted for just over 2% of its assets as of October 12, 2020.
  • We believe MOAT’s valuations remain attractive signaling upside potential if the market recognizes the mispricing of the portfolio stocks based on Morningstar’s fair value assessments.

Fund Description
