My core holding and an ETF for the long run. It isn't sexy but the diversification and low fees should make it slightly underperform in good times and significantly overperform in bad. The dividend isn't great but the growth rate far outpaces inflation while the stock screen selects companies that can keep their dividend up. My biggest issue with this fund is how long it takes for a company to qualify, which selects out some huge winners but also many huge losers.
