I'm looking to compare index funds, such as VTIVX vs VGTSX vs VFIAX, etc. I've found these posts that address P/E ratios for the S&P 500:

Do similar metrics exists for other index funds (especially globally diversified funds)?

  • If you are concerned with PE, why not buy a fund that actually has a value objective? I get your logic, but PE on funds is a really messy statistic, it will be very hard to use for comparisons between funds. – Superbest Jun 15 '17 at 2:09
  • I don't see how it would be 'hard to use for comparisons between funds'. It might be difficult to calculate, but useful for comparisons IMO. – Derelict Jun 15 '17 at 19:40

ycharts.com has "Weighted Average PE Ratio" and a bunch of other metrics that are meant to correspond to well known stock metrics. Other websites will have similar ratios.

The S&P 500 is a market index. The P/E data you're finding for the S&P 500 is data based on the constituent list of that market index and isn't necessarily the P/E ratio of a given fund, even one that aims to track the performance of the S&P 500.

I'm sure similar metrics exist for other market indexes, but unless Vanguard is publishing it's specific holdings in it's target date funds there's no market index to look at.
