MOAT
VanEck Vectors Morningstar Wide Moat ETF

Market Updates*

  • The outcome of MOAT’s index reviews in 2020 was a reduction of big-tech and other growth-oriented exposure and a shift toward value stocks.
  • FAANG + Microsoft accounted for over 23% of the S&P 500 Index while only Amazon and Microsoft remain in MOAT and accounted for just over 2% of its assets as of November 30, 2020.1
  • 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.
