The following are MSAVX weaknesses from our perspective:

  • MSAVX net assets are $810.30 million. This fund is not a popular choice with retail investors.
  • MSAVX 3-year return is -4.26%, which is lower than the 3-year return of the benchmark index (Russell Mid Cap Value TR USD), -2.41%.
  • MSAVX 5-year return is -1.92%, which is lower than the 5-year return of the benchmark index (Russell Mid Cap Value TR USD), 1.46%.

  • 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.
