    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 Worst - The holding-weighted average rate of return for a portfolio equal to the discount rate of interest and principal cash flows where the principal is returned at the earliest allowable date. If the earliest return of principal is at the stated maturity the Yield to Maturity % will be the same as the Yield to Worst %.

      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.
      Municipal income may be subject to state and local taxes for out-of-state residents. Some income may be subject to the federal alternative minimum tax for certain investors. Capital gains, if any, are taxable.
