1 The 30-day dividend yield represents the average daily dividends for the 30-day period, annualized and divided by the net asset values per share at the end of the period; it is available the first quarter after the fund's inception. The SEC standardized yield is computed under an SEC standardized formula and reflects an estimated yield to maturity (assuming all portfolio securities are held to maturity); it is available the first month after the fund's inception.
2 Average annual total return figures include changes in principal value, reinvested dividends, and capital gain distributions. For funds less than one year old, the Since Inception return figure is not annualized and represents an aggregate total return.
^ The gross expense ratio reflects the fund expenses as stated in the fee table of the fund's prospectus prior to the deduction of any waiver or reimbursement. The net expense ratio reflects fund expenses after the deduction of any waiver or reimbursement. If a fund has an active contractual expense limitation, the expiration date is shown below the gross and net expense ratio values above. Expense ratios are as of the most recent prospectus.
