Yields are calculated using the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) formula. Yields represent past results and will fluctuate. The money market fund yield reflects the most current 7-day period annualized.
The 30-day yield is provided for all other funds.
Total returns and average annual total returns quoted at American FundsLine, our 24-hour automated touch-tone phone service, represent past results through the end of the most recent calendar quarter and are not predictive of future results.
Returns shown in the Investments section of our website represent past results through the most recent month-end. These returns are calculated in accordance with SEC rules, which reflect deduction of the appropriate sales charge with all distributions reinvested.
Share price and return will vary, so you may lose money investing in the funds. The shorter the time period of your investment, the greater the possibility of loss.
