Reading returns on Google Finance

Post by icedtea » Mon Jan 14, 2013 4:02 pm

If you look up VBTLX on Google Finance, the 1-yr trailing returns on the right hand side are 3.77%. But if you adjust the graph to 1 year, you see much less % growth in the graph itself. What accounts for the difference between the rate of change in the graph and the trailing returns on the right?
