Andrew:

Thanks for the heads up on VWITX yield. Vanguard has the yield at 2% while both Yahoo Finance and Schwab call for a 3.5% yield. VWITX is paying a monthly .039, or .468 annually, which when divided by the current $14.23 per share price yields 3.29%.

I can't figure out why Vanguard shows a different yield, but it sure makes a difference.

Anyone got an explanation?
