We’ve mentioned before that small-cap exchange traded funds (ETFs) have outperformed large caps for the last five years. However, as Gary Gordon for ETF Expert says, this year large-cap stocks have outpaced small-cap competitors. In fact, large-cap growth funds have posted the biggest gains among the major stock-fund categories during the third quarter. This point emphasizes that large-cap ETFs could be a vital piece of any ETF portfolio. When selecting a large-cap ETF, consider some of these major players and their performance year-to-date:
- iShares Russell 1000 Index (IWB) – up 11.5%
- SPDRs (SPY) – up 11.2%
- iShares S&P 100 Index (OEF) – up 11.5%
