Gross / Net Expense Ratio
7-Day Current / Effective Ann. Yield
The current yield more closely reflects current earnings than does the total return.
7-Day Current Annualized Yield – A simple interest calculation. A measure of return that divides average net income received over a 7-day period by the average balance in your account and multiplies the result by 365 to get an annual equivalent. This measure reflects income actually received over the last 7 days and differs from Effective Annualized Yield in that it does not reflect compounding.
7-Day Effective Annualized Yield – A compound interest calculation. A measure of return that compounds the 7-Day Current Yield to an annual figure. This measure assumes that dividends are reinvested and that an investor will earn the 7-Day Yield for an entire year. It also reflects interest earned on interest, or compounded interest.
