Thanks. Unless it changes, I don't see VTSAX nor VFWAX on the list. I'd understand about the latter given its performance, but not sure about the former...maybe because it's an index which is fine by me.

I would expect no capital gains on either of those funds, as they have an ETF version which allows for tax effective management of capital gains.

Exactly. I have both of these funds, and I don't even have a column in my spreadsheet to record any capital gains from either because they haven't had any (at least since I have owned them). They will give you dividends though.
