3 Best Total U.S. Market ETFs

For most U.S. investors, the first ETF you add to your portfolio should be a top-quality U.S. total stock market ETF. As opposed to the S&P 500, which is comprised solely of large companies (large-cap), the landscape covered by these ETFs also encompasses many smaller companies (mid-cap, small-cap, and even micro-cap). Such companies, while offering a higher level of risk than their larger brethren, also offer greater opportunities for growth.

In this article I wrote for Seeking Alpha, I review what I consider to be your 3 best choices in this sector, with comments on 2 additional ETFs as a bonus.
