14. What are the cons of investing in AABSX? What are AABSX negatives?

The following are AABSX weaknesses from our perspective:

  • AABSX net assets are $0.20 million. This fund is not a popular choice with retail investors.
  • Warning: this fund has a 12b1 and front-end sales fee. The maximum 12b1 fee is 0.25%, while the maximum front-end sales load is 5.5%. A 12b-1 fee is an annual marketing or distribution fee on a mutual fund. Front-end sales load, also known as sales charge, is a fee paid when mutual funds shares are purchased. Those fees are subtracted from your total investable assets.
  • AABSX expense ratio is 0.86%, which is not negligible. Is the fund expensive to you, and does it align to your investment strategy?
