For Christ's sake, stop with this. He asked about mutual funds, not ETFs. Are you an ETF salesman or something?
Aren't VDAIX and VIG essentially the same thing with VIG being more efficient, and therefore "better" than VDAIX if all things were equal?
From what I understand, ETFs are superior than their fund counterpart in almost every way, with the only argument I've seen against ETFs is that you can "trade too easily" in this may encourage people to time the market, get risky, etc.
