To estimate your distribution for a fund on this list, multiply the number of shares you own by the fund’s total per-share capital gains estimate.

These estimates are subject to change as we finalize our calculations for each fund. In early December, we plan to provide final estimates, including estimated income through December 31, 2017, for all funds. We’ll add the final distribution amounts to our fund-distribution table and each fund’s profile page after the fund’s declaration date in December 2017.

Note: Funds not listed don’t expect, as of October 31, 2017, to distribute capital gains in December.

Notes:

All investing is subject to risk, including the possible loss of the money you invest.

The performance data shown represent past performance, which is not a guarantee of future results. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate, so investors’ shares, when sold, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data cited. For performance data current to the most recent month-end, visit Investment products.


Vanguard ETF Shares are not redeemable with the issuing fund other than in very large aggregations worth millions of dollars. Instead, investors must buy and sell Vanguard ETF Shares in the secondary market and hold those shares in a brokerage account. In doing so, the investor may incur brokerage commissions and may pay more than net asset value when buying and receive less than net asset value when selling.
