As required by law, funds that have net gains from the sale of securities or earn dividends and interest from securities they hold must pass the largest possible portion of those earnings on to its shareholders or those gains will be subject to corporate income taxes and excise taxes. These taxes would, in effect, reduce your total return.
Below are the most recently reported distributions for Fidelity funds. When reviewing, please note that this listing does not include monthly dividends paid by bond and money market funds.
The per-share amount of a distribution is deducted from a fund's net asset value (NAV), so prices for funds listed the next day reflect the distribution reductions. It's important to note that an investor will not experience a loss from a distribution.
