The following are SEMOX weaknesses from our perspective:

  • <strong>SEMOX net assets</strong> are $34.30 million. This fund is not a popular choice with retail investors.
  • <strong>SEMOX 3-year return</strong> is -1.38%, which is lower than the 3-year return of the benchmark index (Bloomberg Barclays US MBS TR USD), 3.67%.
  • <strong>SEMOX 5-year return</strong> is 0.77%, which is lower than the 5-year return of the benchmark index (Bloomberg Barclays US MBS TR USD), 3.08%.
  • <strong>SEMOX expense ratio</strong> is 1.01%, 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 2%. 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.
