How much does it cost?
When you buy shares in a mutual fund, the price of your shares is based on the overall value of the mutual fund’s assets at the time, which is used to calculate the Net Asset Value per share on a daily basis. The overall value of a fund can move up or down daily, depending on how the individual stocks, bonds or other securities in the fund are performing in the market. You should also be aware of the fees and expenses associated with mutual funds. Information about this can be found in the prospectus.
How do I know I’m getting good value?
Rather than focusing on the current price of a fund, consider its value over time. If the overall value of your mutual fund shares increases from your initial purchase cost, you can sell your shares and take the profit (minus any sales charges, fees, or taxes). This is one way your investments can grow in value over time.
