Several S&P 500 ETFs have been brought to market since, and we show their performance, as well as the tracking error relative to the S&P 500 Total Return Index (which assumes reinvestment of dividends).
The S&P 500 ETFs tracked here include State Street Global Advisors’ SPDR (SPY), iShares Core S&P 500 ETF (IVV), and Vanguard’s S&P 500 ETF (VOO). The first chart presents the trailing twelve-month price return for SPY (IVV and VOO are almost identical). Figures are through April month-end.
Here is the YTD return for all three including their average, now at 0.50% – note the close tracking, as expected.
Finally, here is a table listing each ETF’s tracking error, expense ratio, and YTD return.
Check back in early June for the May month-end update.
The Vanguard 500 Index Fund (VOO) fell $1.42 (-0.57%) in premarket trading Wednesday. Year-to-date, VOO has gained 2.07%.
