    ‘MOAT’ ETF Gave Investors Right Exposure at Right Time in 2018

    U.S. stocks posted their worst year in a decade after what was a rough 2018 for U.S. equities with the Dow losing 5.80 percent, while the S&P 500 shed 6.5 percent and the Nasdaq Composite down over 4 percent. A confluence of trade wars, rising interest rates and volatility helped to bring the markets down after an extended bull run that peaked during the summer, but despite the challenges near year's end, the VanEck Vectors Morningstar Wide Moat ETF (MOAT) gave investors the right exposure at just the right time. "Morningstar’s unique forward-looking focus on companies with sustainable competitive advantages and attractive valuations gave the index an overweight to healthcare stocks while resulted in more selective exposure to sectors that, as a whole, were viewed as overvalued throughout the year," wrote Brandon Rakszawski , Senior ETF Product Manager at VanEck.
