Vanguard and Yahoo Finance provide detailed information on the current and previous day’s closing prices of mutual funds. Other information includes the top-performing mutual funds and their year-to-date return.
Each publication provides readers with the net asset value, known as the NAV, of each mutual fund. Similar to the price of individual stocks, the NAV represents the current value of all assets held in the mutual fund minus liabilities divided by the number of shares currently available for trading, known as the number of shares outstanding. A fund’s exact share price is the net asset value plus any and all sales taxes.
