The following are ACBUX weaknesses from our perspective:

  • <strong>ACBUX net assets</strong> are $0.10 million. This fund is not a popular choice with retail investors.
  • <strong>ACBUX 3-year return</strong> is 10.11%, which is lower than the 3-year return of the benchmark index (S&P 500 TR USD), 11.64%.
  • <strong>ACBUX 5-year return</strong> is 11.01%, which is lower than the 5-year return of the benchmark index (S&P 500 TR USD), 13.04%.
  • <strong>ACBUX expense ratio</strong> is 1.4%, 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.
