Distribution & Yields
Distribution & Yields
Distributions may be comprised of ordinary income, net capital gains, and/or a return of capital (ROC) of your investment in the fund. Because the distribution rate and the 12-month rate may include a ROC, they should not be confused with yield or income. Please refer to the most recent Section 19 Notice, if applicable, for additional information regarding the composition of distributions. Final determination of a distribution’s tax character will be made on Form 1099 DIV sent to shareholders each January.
Distribution Rate: The distribution rate measures the percentage return in the form of dividends. It is calculated daily by annualizing the most recent dividend distribution and dividing by the daily share price (NAV or POP). If the Fund did not make a distribution as of the latest scheduled distribution date, "N/A" will be displayed.
12-month Rate: The 12-month rate measures the percentage return in the form of dividends. It is calculated monthly by taking the sum of the trailing 12-month dividend payments divided by the last month's ending share price (NAV or POP) plus any capital gains distributed over previous 12 months. If the Fund did not make any distributions over the previous 12 months, "N/A" will be displayed.
The 30 Day SEC Yield is calculated by dividing the net investment income per share for the first 30 days of the month by the offering price per share at the end of that period. The yield reflects the dividends and interest earned during the period, after the deduction of the Fund's expenses. Yield reflects a fee waiver and/or expense limitation agreement without which the 30 Day SEC Yield would have been lower.
Dividend distributions are the distribution of a dividend to mutual fund shareholders as of a certain date. The following Funds declare daily dividends: MainStay MacKay California Tax Free Opportunities, MainStay Floating Rate, MainStay MacKay High Yield Municipal Bond, MainStay MacKay U.S. Infrastructure Bond Fund, MainStay Money Market, MainStay MacKay New York Tax Free Opportunities, MainStay MacKay Short Term Municipal Fund and MainStay MacKay Tax Free Bond.
