The fund's performance and rating are calculated based on net asset value NAV , not market price. An ETF's risk-adjusted return includes a brokerage commission estimate. This estimate is intended to reflect what an average investor would pay when buying or selling an ETF. This estimate is subject to change, and the actual commission an investor pays may be higher or lower. Morningstar compares each ETF's risk-adjusted return to the open-end mutual fund rating breakpoints for that category.

The overall rating for an ETF is based on a weighted average of the time-period ratings e. The determination of an ETF's rating does not affect the retail open-end mutual fund data published by Morningstar. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. SEC Day Yield is a standard yield calculation developed by the Securities and Exchange Commission that allows investors to more fairly compare funds.

The figure is calculated by dividing the net investment income less expenses by the current maximum offering price. Current yield is equal to a bond's annual interest payment divided by its current market price. The current yield only refers to the yield of the bond at the current moment, not the total return over the life of the bond.

Dividend yield shows how much a company pays out in dividends each year relative to its share price. In the absence of any capital gains, the dividend yield is the return on investment for a stock. Effective duration is a measure of a fund's sensitivity to interest rate changes, reflecting the likely change in bond prices given a small change in yields. Higher duration generally means greater sensitivity. Effective duration for this fund is calculated including both the long bond positions and the short Treasury futures positions.

Distribution Yield represents the annualized yield based on the last income distribution. Trailing price to earnings ratio measures market value of a fund or index relative to the collective earnings of its component stocks for the most recent month period. Price to book ratio measures market value of a fund or index relative to the collective book values of its component stocks.

Weighted average market cap is the average market value of a fund or index, weighted for the market capitalization price times shares outstanding of each component. In such a weighting scheme, larger market cap companies carry greater weight than smaller market cap companies.

Sometimes distributions are re-characterized for tax purposes after they've been declared. An ROC is a distribution to investors that returns some or all of their capital investment, thus reducing the value of their investment. In an efficient market, the investment's price will fall by an amount approximately equal to the ROC. In general, investors are not taxed on an ROC unless it begins to exceed their original investment value.

This is the dollar amount of your initial investment in the fund. This is the percentage change in the index or benchmark since your initial investment.
