The Index is consisted of approximately 100 securities selected, based on investment and other criteria developed by Sabrient Systems LLC, from a universe of the United States-traded securities, including master limited partnerships and American depositary receipts. As of Aug 31 2015, the Fund's total assets were $213,567,581 and the Fund's investment portfolio was valued at $212,742,917. The BSCP YTD return is shown above.
The YTD Return on the BSCP YTD return page and across the coverage universe of our site,
is a measure of the total return for a given investment year-to-date for the current calendar year
(up to the end of prior trading session). Arguably, choosing the current calendar year for a measurement
period is on the one hand completely arbitrary, but on the other hand a year-to-date look can be extremely
useful in the context of our country's tax system which taxes gains and income on a calendar year basis.
Thus, researching Year-To-Date Returns is good practice for investors — whether BSCP YTD return or other benchmarks/peers
— and when doing so it is also important to factor in dividends, because a financial instrument's YTD return is
more than just the change in price if that instrument pays a dividend or coupon. Our website aims to empower investors
by performing the BSCP YTD return calculation (with any dividends reinvested as applicable), and to provide a
coverage universe of many stocks and ETFs to be able to compare YTD returns.
