    Yield fluctuates and past performance is no guarantee of future results.

    The SEC 30-day Yield is calculated by dividing the net investment income per share earned during the period (calculated in accordance with regulatory guidelines) by the maximum offering price per share on the last day of the period.

    Unsubsidized yield displays what the fund's 30-Day SEC Yield would have been had no fee waiver or expense reimbursement been in place during the period.

     

     

    Portfolio Turnover Rate - It is a measure of how quickly securities in a fund are either bought or sold by the fund's managers, over a given period of time.

    Average Effective Maturity (AEM) - is a measure of maturity that takes into account the possibility that a bond might be called back by the issuer. For a portfolio of bonds, average effective maturity is the weighted average of the maturities of the underlying bonds.

    Average Effective Duration - It is used to measure the market price sensitivity of the fund’s portfolio holdings to changes in interest-rates. Duration is not a complete measure of bond risk and may not be successful.

    Yield to Maturity (YTM) - is the expected annual rate of return earned on a bond assuming the debt security is held until maturity.

          Main Risks

          Bonds are subject to interest rate, credit, liquidity, call and market risks, to varying degrees. Generally, all other factors being equal, bond prices are inversely related to interest-rate changes and rate increases can cause price declines.
          Investing in foreign denominated and/or domiciled securities involves special risks, including changes in currency exchange rates, political, economic, and social instability, limited company information, differing auditing and legal standards, and less market liquidity. These risks generally are greater with emerging market countries.
          High yield bonds involve increased credit and liquidity risk than higher rated bonds and are considered speculative in terms of the issuer's ability to pay interest and repay principal on a timely basis. Currencies are subject to the risk that those currencies will decline in value relative to a local currency, or, in the case of hedged positions, that the local currency will decline relative to the currency being hedged. Each of these risks could increase the fund's volatility.
          The use of derivatives involves risks different from, or possibly greater than, the risks associated with investing directly in the underlying assets. Derivatives can be highly volatile, illiquid, and difficult to value and there is the risk that changes in the value of a derivative held by the portfolio will not correlate with the underlying instruments or the portfolio's other investments.

          Risk Metrics

          As of  04/30/24  3-Year Trailing Standard Deviation Alpha Beta R-Squared Sharpe Ratio
          DIBAX
          10.48 -1.67 1.30 82.90 -0.97

          All risk metrics are provided by Morningstar. The index used in the calculations are determined by Morningstar which may not be the funds primary benchmark. The index Morningstar used for this analysis is Bloomberg U.S. Aggregate Bond Index.


          Alpha - Alpha is a measure of a security's or portfolio's excess return.

          Beta - Beta is a measure of a security’s or portfolio’s volatility, or systematic risk.

          R-Squared - R-squared is a statistical measure that represents the percentage of a fund’s or security’s movements that are explained by movements in a benchmark index.

          Sharpe Ratio - Sharpe ratio is a risk-adjusted measure that measures reward per unit of risk. The higher the Sharpe ratio, the better.

          Standard Deviation - Standard deviation is a statistical measure of the degree to which an individual portfolio return tends to vary from the mean, based on the entire population. The greater the degree of dispersion, the greater the degree of risk. In mutual funds, the standard deviation tells us how much the return on the fund is deviating from the expected normal returns.
