Moat Investing: Keeping Up with the Joneses

By Brandon Rakszawski, VanEck Senior ETF Product Manager

The Morningstar® Wide Moat Focus IndexSM (MWMFTR, or “U.S. Moat Index”) outpaced the broad U.S. equity markets as represented by the S&P 500 Index (3.66% vs. 3.21%) in February. Tech companies became a more prominent exposure in the U.S. Moat Index following the December index review, and the sector represented an outsized portion of the U.S. Moat Index’s return for the month, similar to the broad market. Consumer staples companies were also strong contributors for the month, and all sectors posted positive returns.
