The SEC yield is an annualized yield based on the most recent 30 day period. The fund’s yield quotation includes an adjustment to the principal value of the TIPS securities to reflect changes in the government’s official inflation rate, if any; changes in the government’s official inflation rate can cause the fund’s yield to vary substantially from one month to the next. At times, including during periods of deflation, the SEC yield calculation may result in a negative number. An exceptionally high SEC yield may be attributable to a rise in the inflation rate, which might not be repeated.
