Here's a statement of the obvious: The opinions expressed here are those of the participants, not those of the Mutual Fund Observer. We cannot vouch for the accuracy or appropriateness of any of it, though we do encourage civility and good humor.
Occasionally Lipper has 2 different YTD numbers displayed for a given fund. As it seems to pertain more to those that pay dividends, I’m guessing one number is the NAV YTD and the other (better) number includes interest or dividends. Correct?
Here’s a link to the Lipper page for DFND. The initial YTD return is -9.30%. But if you pull up the “performance” page, the YTD is somewhat better at -9.09%.
