Fund Description

The Vanguard High Dividend Yield Index Fund Investor Shares (VHDYX) is a low-cost, passively managed fund that bets on large-cap stocks with above-average dividend yields. VHDYX is an index fund that tracks the FTSE High Dividend Yield Index using a full-replication approach. This index includes U.S. stocks with the highest dividend yields, but excludes REITs, MLPs and BDCs.

VHDYX makes an ideal subcore position in a portfolio when paired with another broader U.S. equity option. For income seekers, however, the fund could play first fiddle. The fund is internally managed by Vanguard.
