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.
Massive drop on big up day (12/7)...MS shows the fund gained but the price drop was shocking (like 20%). Seems like this has to be some type of distribution but I can't find anything saying so. Any ideas?
This is the same issue with many Pimco equity funds. It is best to hold such funds in tax-deferred/free accounts.
Drops for 2017, 2018, 2021 are noticeable in Stockcharts with the start date of 1/1/17 (reset if defaults to 1 yr), https://stockcharts.com/h-perf/ui?s=DSEEX&compare=_DSEEX&id=p74276459757
What would that mean here? What could one lose? What are you saying?
Is owning DSEEX not worrisome? (Aside from 'price drop was shocking .... Seems like this has to be some type of distribution but I can't find anything saying so. Any ideas?')
Thanks to all for the useful information you’ve added.
As one who has had quite a bit of money in both CAPE and DSEEX I was curious (a little) about the OP and then the followup about utter failure yada yada, but now thinking I were better not to have queried, as it all seems uninformed.
Kudos to @wxman123 for hanging tough with the strategy. I chickened out.
and maybe the fund does have risk 'advantages'.
