How to Purchase

VanEck Vectors Morningstar Wide Moat ETF

  • The VanEck Vectors Morningstar Wide Moat ETF (MOAT) has outperformed the S&P 500 Index from its peak on February 19, 2020 through March 25, 2020 by 0.88% and trails year-to-date by 0.53%.
  • Its Index underwent its quarterly review on March 23, 2020 allowing it to target undervalued wide moat US companies. It dialed up financials exposure and scaled back health care.
  • Index reviews during market volatility and sell-offs have, at times historically, benefited the index. Most recently, the Index allocated to many oversold semiconductor companies at the end of December 2018. Many of those companies helped fuel 2019 outperformance.
  • MOAT’s valuations are at levels not seen since 2011 and are far more attractive than the broad market signaling greater upside potential if the market recognizes the mispricing of the portfolio stocks based on Morningstar’s fair value assessments.
