Bar, Looks like this is how the IJH juices its returns (below). In contrast, the Vanguard offering (VO) looks like a plain vanilla index ETF. But looking closer at the long term performance, there hasn't been very much of a difference. Over 20 years, VO is up 5.6 fold and IJH is up 5.8 fold. In comparison, the SPY up 6.2 fold, and QQQ up 11.8 fold (approx figures). So I take back what I said about the IJH blowing away the QQQ over the long haul. The QQQ has been the mega standout, as your kids have seen from their sizable purchases decades ago :o) However --> CTAS has blown them all away -- up approx 14.6 fold over 20 years, yikes.

iShares Core S+P Mid Cap ETF (IJH) -

>>> The index measures the performance of the mid-capitalization sector of the U.S. equity market, as determined by SPDJI. The fund generally will invest at least 80% of its assets in the component securities of its index and in investments that have economic characteristics that are substantially identical to the component securities of its index and may invest up to 20% of its assets in certain futures, options and swap contracts, cash and cash equivalents. <<<

Compare to Vanguard's Mid Cap ETF (VO) -

>>> The fund employs an indexing investment approach designed to track the performance of the CRSP US Mid Cap Index, a broadly diversified index of stocks of mid-size U.S. companies. The advisor attempts to replicate the target index by investing all, or substantially all, of its assets in the stocks that make up the index, holding each stock in approximately the same proportion as its weighting in the index. <<<
