I like how Vanguard breaks out their ETFs. This website does a good job of showing holdings, expense ratios, average performance, and long term hypothetical growth.
Love VPU, I’ve been adding to my position over the past few months as a hedge against any uncertainty. I think as a whole utilities are probably one of the safest value stock segments on the market - room to grow, inflation protected, and even in a recession would have limited downside risk.
Right now I’m sitting at about 8% of my portfolio in VPU, you?
I’m at 10%, they pay a great yield all things considered (3%). Compared to any other “safe” investment and its no comparison - putting money in a bank account is loosing money with inflation now starting to hit.
