I predict that when the fund distributions occur, and the NAV drops that day, there will be panicked posts to the effect of...."The price of my mutual fund dropped by 2% today, but the market was up, what is going on????!!!!"
I eat risk for breakfast. :)

We have an on-going thread: [Why did my fund suddenly drop in value?]

Feel free to bump the thread when the new investors start asking questions.
