SCHD

Reconstitution changes (purchases) will be made 3/21/2022 this year. However, my notes show the date the index constituents selections are made is done in Feb of each year. I cannot find the exact date in the Index Methodology document. Does anybody know when the index is finalized? If my notes are right..... it would be possible for valuations to change between Feb and March given volatility we are seeing.

  • Based on the fund’s history going back to its inception the “reconstitution” formula works well more often than not. SCHD has exceeded my expectations and leads its segment. The upcoming changes may be for the best as they have been most years. Just my opinion.
