Investing in large value fund

For the large cap portion of my portfolio, I am invested in VPCCX and SLADX in taxable accounts. I am thinking of selling SLADX and looking to replace it with a large cap value fund that doesn't have a huge stake in financials.

I was thinking of VEIPX or EQTIX, but not sure if they are tax efficient. Does anyone think these are good options or if you could offer any other suggestions, I would welcome feedback.

Here's where I've always gotten the tax efficiency metrics I use FWIW...

Shelton Core Value Direct Shares (EQTIX) Fund Tax Analysis

All my LCV $ is in VVIAX, so I have no recommendation.

Same here but in the equivalent ETF, VTV. Large cap value is suppose to be the most likely part of the "value premium" to appear from what I understand. The small premium is less stable apparently. I don't worry about taxes because this is in tax deferred or tax free accounts.
