Ok. I have heard all the talk that large caps were going to perform and we better switch over to value. I also heard at the start of the year that energy related stocks were going to be the ones to throw into the trash and that we should wait for oil to go to $35. Hmmmm. Lets take a look at some ETFs to debunk a few myths... https://flagship.vanguard.com/VGApp/hnw/funds/etf/bytypeSec Total Stock Market ETF- 9.23% YTD Large Cap ETF- 9% Large Cap value- 8.16% Large Cap Growth- 9.87% Extended Market (meaning everything not in the S&P500)- 11.74% Mid-Cap Growth- 16.8% Small Cap Growth- 15.74% Energy- 21.63% High Dividend Yield Large cap- 6.4% So do you really believe that dividend paying large caps are still the way to go?
