going to invest about $10k in a tax-free acct, thinking either VIGRX or VUG. When I compare the two on yahoo finance, if I set timeframe to 10 yrs, they both perform the same, if I do the max, VIGRX way outperforms VUG. Is this because VIGRX has a much earlier inception date?

any other thoughts on one is better than the other? thanks.

BTW, the acct is with TDAmeritrade which charges a $25 fee on MF, but that's minor.

Yes, VIGRX inception is 1992 and VUG is 2004. It may be cheaper to buy them directly with Vanguard.

it's a HSA account thru my employer, the HSA investment is thru TDAmeritrade, so I have no other options.
