ADOCX prosNone that we could think of.
The following are ADOCX weaknesses from our perspective:
- ADOCX net assets are $14.30 million. This fund is not a popular choice with retail investors.
- ADOCX 3-year return is 7.09%, which is lower than the 3-year return of the benchmark index (S&P 500 TR USD), 13.04%.
- ADOCX 5-year return is 8.02%, which is lower than the 5-year return of the benchmark index (S&P 500 TR USD), 12.37%.
- ADOCX 10-year return is 7.04%, which is lower than the 10-year return of the benchmark index (S&P 500 TR USD), 13.88%.
- ADOCX expense ratio is 1.86%, which is not negligible. Is the fund expensive to you, and does it align to your investment strategy?
- Warning: this fund has a 12b1 and deferred sales fee. The maximum 12b1 fee is 1%, while the maximum deferred sales load is 1%. A 12b-1 fee is an annual marketing or distribution fee on a mutual fund. Deferred sales load is a back-end sales charge and is imposed when an investor redeems shares.
