Why VUSXX is showing YTD return of 1.5%

Post by recklessmax »

Can someone clarify why VUSXX is showing an YTD return of 1.5% for 2023 on vanguard website although the average SEC yield and daily dividend accrual has been 4% or more for all the days in 2023

That is 2022 YTD. On the main profile for the fund it lists as of 1/23 YTD of 0.26%

Also YTD is not annualized, I think. while quoted yields are. Right?

.26% times 365/24 is about 4%, however it is that one should count the days for something like that.
