For investors looking for momentum, Vanguard Mega Cap ETF MGC is probably a suitable pick. The fund just hit a 52-week high and is up 51.5% from its 52-week low price of $95.69/share.

Let’s take a look at the fund and its near-term outlook to gain an insight into where it might be headed:

MGC in Focus

This fund seeks to track the performance of the CRSP US Mega Cap Index. It has AUM of $3.72 billion and charges 7 basis points in annual fees.

Why the Move?

The U.S. economy is appearing to be on the path of recovery from the pandemic-led slowdown. Markedly, accelerated vaccine distribution, strong fiscal stimulus support and the reopening of non-essential businesses are expected to fasten the economic recovery pace. Notably, the central bank has raised its economic growth outlook considering the vaccine and stimulus optimism and it also expects higher inflation this year. Furthermore, there are certain new economic data releases which are pointing toward economic recovery. Notably, the recently-released robust job and manufacturing data have majorly boosted market participants' confidence. This is making funds like MGC an attractive investment option.

More Gains Ahead?

It seems like the fund will remain strong, with a positive weighted alpha of 46.15, which gives cues of further rally.
