iShares S&P 500 Value Index Fund (IVE)

If you are interested in trading some value stocks, but aren't quite sure which stock you trust the most, then you may want to consider an ETF such as the iShares S&P 500 Value Index Fund (IVE). This exchange traded fund corresponds to the price and performance of the S&P 500 Value Index. The underlying index tracks  the performance of the large-cap value-stock sector of the U.S. equity market. The stocks that IVE holds have an average P/E ratio of 11.5 and an average Price/Book ratio of 1.4. Some of its biggest holdings include General Electric (GE), Microsoft (MSFT), Wells Fargo (WFC) and Exxon Mobil (XOM). Each of those stocks have P/E of around 15 or lower. Using this ETF allows you to diversify over a wide range of stocks, which limits your downside risk should one or more of the stocks run into trouble. ETFs are great for the investor looking to enter into a specific part of the market, but not put all their eggs in one basket.
