Schwab Index Funds: Investors Can Profit From The Future
The Schwab index fund, which is a market-cap-weighted index fund that has outperformed the S&P 500 over the past decade, has been the target of some criticism in recent months.
The fund’s market cap has dropped from $8.3 billion to just under $1.5 billion over the last three years, with some saying it’s no longer the best investment in the market.
The Schwabs market cap in the past year has fallen from $16.5 to $9.1 billion, while its share price has fallen over the same time period from $19.99 to $13.96.
The stock’s price has been on a tear since trading was halted on Sept. 9.
On Tuesday, Schwab’s market value was up nearly $4 billion.
It now trades at $12.97, down more than 20% from last year’s closing price of $14.85.
Hedge fund manager Scott Besser said that the Schwab ETF’s performance over the year has been an improvement over the S & P 500’s.
He said he doesn’t see any reason why it shouldn’t continue to perform well over the long term.
“Schwab’s performance is good,” he said.
“Its an index fund and there’s a lot of volatility, so its an index that’s getting more and more exposure.
And I think its a good way to start to diversify the market.”
The market-based Schwab fund outperformed S&s S&p 500 index over the years from 1990 to 2015, according to Schwab.
Its performance is “much better than what you’d see from the S-B index, but not necessarily better than the S;P-500,” he told The New York Times.
Schwab is a fund of Schwab Funds, which was founded in 1985 and manages $1 trillion in assets, according the S.E.C. The market is expected to grow to $3.1 trillion by 2026, according a research report from Bloomberg.
The index funds are created by Schwab through a merger between its mutual fund business and hedge fund unit, which includes hedge fund and investment-banking businesses, such as Blackrock Inc.
