AdvisorShares Press Release, AdvisorShares Announces December 2014 Distributions
The AdvisorShares Newfleet Multi-Sector Income ETF (NYSE Arca: MINC) seeks to provide current income consistent with preservation of capital, while limiting fluctuations in net asset value (“NAV”) due to changes in interest rates. MINC is managed by Newfleet Asset Management (“Portfolio Manager”), an investment subsidiary of Virtus Investment Partners. Newfleet believes that active fixed income sector rotation and quality security selection, combined with disciplined risk management, offers the best potential to achieve the Fund's investment objective of providing a high level of total return, including a competitive level of current income in the fixed income market.
|Yield to Maturity||3.10%|
|30-Day SEC Subsidized Yield||2.88%|
|30-Day SEC Unsubsidized Yield||2.82%|
Past Performance is not indicative of future results. MINC statistics and bond sector allocation are for the actual MINC security holdings as of the listed date, excluding cash. Duration is the change of a fixed income security that will result from a 1% change in interest rates, and is based on the yield to worst date. Yield to Maturity is the yield if the security is held until the maturity date. 30–Day SEC Yield (Standardized Yield) is an annualized yield that is calculated by dividing the investment income earned by the Fund less expenses over the most recent 30-day period by the current maximum offering price. The Subsidized Yield reflects fee waivers and/or expense reimbursements recorded by the Fund during the period. Without waivers and/or reimbursements, yields would be reduced. The Unsubsidized Yield does not adjust for any fee waivers and/ or expense reimbursements in effect. If the Fund does not incur any fee waivers and/or expense reimbursements during the period, the 30-Day Subsidized Yield and 30-Day Unsubsidized Yield will be identical.
The ratings issued by Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Organizations assess the credit worthiness of a corporation's or government debt issues. The ratings apply to the fund's holdings and not the fund itself. The higher of the ratings between Moody’s, Standard & Poor's and Fitch is used. If one of the three agencies does not have a rating, the higher of the other two ratings is used. If only one agency has rated the bond, the rating from that agency is used. If none of the three agencies have rated the bond the bond is placed in the Not Rated category.
The credit ratings are published rankings based on detailed financial analyses by a credit bureau specifically as it relates to the bond issue'rs ability to meet debt obligations. The highest rating is AAA, and the lowest is D. Securities with credit ratings of BBB and above are considered investment grade.
