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

The 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. Here is a chart of VTI dividends.

The following chart show 20-year returns for an initial $10,000 investment in VTI.
