I have a concern about my Target Retirement Income account (VTINX) and am hoping someone can help me out. This fund is made up of 5 other funds:
1 Vanguard Total Bond Market II Index Fund Investor Shares† 44.7%
2 Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund Investor Shares 21.3%
3 Vanguard Inflation-Protected Securities Fund Investor Shares 19.8%
4 Vanguard Total International Stock Index Fund Investor Shares 9.3%
5 Vanguard Prime Money Market Fund 4.9%
On 5/21/2013 the first fund went up by .18%, the second one went up by .17%, the third one by .21% the fourth one by .19%, and the fifth one (only 4.9% of the total fund) by .0%. I would have thought this would give me a total of approximately .17%, yet what I got was .08%. I’m sure there’s a good explanation and am hoping someone can tell me what it is. Thanks in advance.
