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

The following are AGOVX weaknesses from our perspective:

  • <strong>AGOVX net assets</strong> are $409.70 million. This fund is not a popular choice with retail investors.
  • <strong>AGOVX 3-year return</strong> is -1.61%, which is lower than the 3-year return of the benchmark index (Bloomberg Barclays US Aggregate Bond TR USD), 5.24%.
  • <strong>AGOVX 5-year return</strong> is -0.43%, which is lower than the 5-year return of the benchmark index (Bloomberg Barclays US Aggregate Bond TR USD), 4.23%.
  • <strong>AGOVX 10-year return</strong> is 0.67%, which is lower than the 10-year return of the benchmark index (Bloomberg Barclays US Aggregate Bond TR USD), 3.73%.
  • <strong>AGOVX 15-year return</strong> is 2.28%, which is lower than the 15-year return of the benchmark index (Bloomberg Barclays US Aggregate Bond TR USD), 4.47%.
  • <strong>AGOVX expense ratio</strong> is 1.08%, 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 front-end sales fee. The maximum 12b1 fee is 0.25%, while the maximum front-end sales load is 4.25%. 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.
