Long-term Stock Index Investing: Own the Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF to Track the Entire U.S. Stock Market

Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF, an exchange-traded fund (ETF) that tracks the CRSP US Total Market Index, is a quick and easy way to own nearly the entire U.S. stock market of almost 4,000 U.S. stocks. Its trading symbol is VTI.

Because VTI includes many dividend-paying stocks, be sure to elect dividend reinvestment when you buy the ETF in your brokerage account. After that the actual dividend reinvestment process will be done automatically.

The following chart show 20-year returns for an initial $10,000 investment in VTI. Here is a chart of VTI dividends.
