Our Performance Rating is based on total return to investors over the last three years, including share price appreciation and distributions to shareholders. This total return is stated net of the expenses and fees charged by the fund. This is then weighted to give longer term performance a slightly greater emphasis. Thus, two funds may have provided identical returns to their shareholders in the last 12 months, but the one with the better performance over the last three years will receive a higher performance rating.
Performance Rank is divided into five categories: Well Above Average, Above Average, Average, Below Average & Well Below Average.
|Year-to-Date||Well Above Average|
SLV's YTD return of 8.72% is well above average in comparison to the closed-end funds rated by TheStreet Ratings.
|1 Year||Below Average|
SLV's 1 Year return of -10.49% is below average in comparison to the closed-end funds rated by TheStreet Ratings.
|3 Year Return||Well Below Average|
SLV's 3 Year return of -18.40% is well below average in comparison to the closed-end funds rated by TheStreet Ratings.
|5 Year Return||Well Below Average|
SLV's 5 Year return of -18.49% is well below average in comparison to the closed-end funds rated by TheStreet Ratings.
Our Risk Rating is based on the level of volatility in the fund’s monthly returns. Like performance, risk is also measured over a three year period using several statistical measures – standard deviation, semi-deviation and a drawdown factor – as barometers of volatility. Funds with more volatility relative to other funds are considered riskier, and thus receive a lower risk rating. By contrast, funds with more stable returns are considered less risky and receive a higher risk rating. The maximum risk rating is B+ since all stock-based investments involve at least some degree of risk.
Risk (Volatility) is divided into five categories: Highest Volatility, Above Average Volatility, Average Volatility, Below Average Volatility & Lowest Volatility.
|3 Year Standard Deviation||Highest Volatility|
SLV's 3 Year Standard Deviation of 24.90% is well above average in comparison to the entire closed-end fund universe rated by TheStreet Ratings. A high standard deviation indicates a high degree of volatility in the past.
|3 Year Semi-Deviation||Below Average Volatility|
SLV's 3 Year Semi-Deviation of 4.88% is below average in comparison to the entire closed-end fund universe rated by TheStreet Ratings. Semi-deviations only consider values that fall below the risk free rate of return used by the TheStreet Ratings model.
|Draw Down||Above Average Volatility|
SLV's Draw Down of -51.91% is considered above average. Draw Down represents the greatest % decline from one period's high to a subsequent period's low.
